Peaches and cream cheese are brought together to make one heck of a delicious dessert in this peach cream cheese dessert.
When I started blogging at the beginning of the month, I mentioned that we are empty nesters now. Even though it has been a few months, I think I am still adjusting to the whole thing of having just Mike and me in the house. The biggest change has been the cooking or more to the point the baking.
Since we have one less person to eat the baked goods, I am not baking as much as did before our son Adam moved out. Mike and I definitely don’t need to eat all the sugary goodies even though I would love to. So I have stopped baking like I did before and when I do bake it is smaller portions.
This is one of my desserts that work well for just the two of us.
About a couple of weeks ago my sister was talking about a yummy peach cheesecake that she had made for her family. It sounded delicious, but I really don’t need a whole cheesecake sitting in my kitchen. That is when I put on my thinking cap.
How about a no-bake cheesecake for two? Or maybe a cheesecake base with no crust, just the creamy cheesecake and peaches topped with a sweetened whipped cream. This is what this post is all about… peach cream cheese dessert.
Believe when I say this is simple but totally yummy!!
The cheesecake part of the dessert contains cream cheese, sugar, whipped cream, and vanilla. Simple! The peaches are sauteed in a skillet with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Simple! The two combinations are then layered in a dish and topped with a sweetened whip cream. You have scrumptious dessert in less than a half an hour. Perfect!
Don’t need a dessert for you? You can double the recipe or triple it if you need to. But, don’t wait too long to make this peach cream cheese dessert, peaches won’t be in season forever.
