What you will need to make this dessert:

Pecan meal: Pecan meal is used as a crust for the dessert. Its nutty flavor and crunchy texture can add depth and contrast to the soft and creamy components of the dessert.

Brown sugar: Brown sugar adds sweetness and a subtle caramel flavor to the crust.

Butter: Butter is used in the crust to help the pecan meal form a delicate, and buttery shape to hold the dessert.

Peaches: Peaches are the star of the Peaches ‘n Cream dessert. They provide natural sweetness, juiciness, and a delicious fruity flavor that balances well with the creamy components.

Sugar: Additional sugar is used to sweeten the peach filling and the cream cheese layer.

Rosé wine: Rosé wine is used to macerate the peaches or add flavor to the peach filling. The wine’s fruity and floral notes can complement the peaches and add a subtle complexity to the dessert.

Unflavored gelatin: Gelatin is used as a thickening agent help the fresh or frozen peaches set up. This is a key component.

Cream Cheese: Cream cheese is a primary component of the “cream” in the Peaches ‘n Cream dessert. It provides a smooth, tangy, and creamy texture that pairs wonderfully with the sweetness of the peaches.

Heavy cream: Heavy cream is another key ingredient for creating the creamy element of the dessert. When whipped, it adds a light and fluffy texture to the cream layer.

Powdered sugar: Powdered sugar is used to sweeten and stabilize the whipped cream layer, giving it a smooth and silky texture.

These ingredients work together to create a delightful Peaches ‘n Cream dessert with a combination of creamy, fruity, and nutty flavors and a mixture of soft and crunchy textures.

This dessert will need to chill for at least 2 hours, or overnight.  Once dessert has set up, you can add prepared peach topping if you are planning to serve that day.  If you are not serving till the next day, wait to add peaches before serving, so they do not dis-color.

Instructions for preparing peaches for topping:

  • Slice a few peaches, and splash with a little lemon juice and a tablespoon of sugar. Let set for a few minutes before arranging on top of dessert.
