Fresh peaches are probably my favorite summer fruit and love to make desserts with them. This is a really easy fresh peach pie that gets an extra richness from a layer of cheese cake like filling. It's a no bake pie also, which makes it easy peasy. Here is what you will need:
1 deep dish graham cracker crust (the one that says 2 extra helpings works best or you can make your own)***
1 (8oz.) pkg, cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbs. cornstarch
1 (3oz.) pkg. peach flavored gelatin (Jello)
4 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches
***You can combine 2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 3 Tbs. sugar and 1/2 cup melted butter and press it into a deep dish pie plate for the crust. Refrigerate for about an hour before using after you press it in the plate.
Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla together until fluffy.
Spread in the pie crust and place in refrigerator to chill while you prepare the rest of the filling.
In a saucepan over medium heat, mix the sugar, water and cornstarch. Stir until it just boils and turns clear and thickens. Add the peach gelatin to the mixture and cook for about a minute stirring constantly and making sure it's smooth. Remove from heat and add the peaches. Allow to cool.
Pour over the chilled cream cheese layer and refrigerate until set.
Serve garnished with whipped cream!
