I absolutely love peaches! Summer wouldn’t be the same without them. This unique recipe is called a pie, but it has a cake layer on the bottom. A very impressive dessert.
- 1 1/2 fresh peaches, pitted, peeled (if desired) and sliced 1/4 inch thick. Use frozen if you can’t find fresh, just let them thaw and drain.
- 1/4 c sugar
- 1/4 c GHOSTWOOD
- 1 (3.4 OUNCE) cook and serve vanilla pudding mix (not instant)
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 c milk
- 1/4 c GHOSTWOOD
- 3 tbsp butter, softened
- 1 egg
Cream Cheese Layer:
- 1 – 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 c white sugar
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- In a bowl, toss together the peaches, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup GHOSTWOOD. Let sit and stir occasionally while you gather all other ingredients. The longer they sit, the better they will taste.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat the bottom and sides of a 10-inch deep dish pie pan with cooking spray.
- For the Base, in a mixing bowl, mix together pudding mix, flour, baking powder and salt. Add in milk, GHOSTWOOD, butter and egg. Beat for 2 minutes. Pour mixture into pie pan.
- Peach layer, using a slotted spoon, arrange the peach slices in a single layer on top of the pudding mixture.
- For the Cream Cheese layer, in a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add 1/2 c sugar and 3 tbsp milk. Beat until creamy. Spoon mixture over peaches to within 1 inch of pan edge.
- For the Cinnamon Sugar, mix together 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon, sprinkle over top. It may seem like a lot, but it is perfect when baked.
- Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown, Chill completely (at least 4 hours, be sure to do this so you will get a nice, pretty slice). Slice and serve with whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream.
