The Best Peach Dessert

With a buttery cookie crust, fresh peaches and a delicious glaze over the top, this really is the best peach dessert.

Ingredients

BOTTOM LAYER

  • 25 Golden Oreo cookies crushed
  • 25 vanilla wafer cookies crushed
  • 1 stick of butter melted

MIDDLE LAYER

  • 1 8oz. package of cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup cool whip
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

TOP LAYER

  • 6 cups peaches peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate from a can
  • 1/4 cup peach juices reserved
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

FOR THE TOP LAYER:

  1. Peel and slice all the peaches. To avoid too much excess liquid in the top layer of this dessert (the peach layer), place the peeled sliced peaches into a colander inside a larger bowl, to allow the peach juices to drip out. Reserve the juices. Chill the peeled sliced peaches in the fridge until ready to assemble.

  2. In a medium sized sauce pan, bring to a boil the reserved peach juices, orange juice concentrate, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and almond extract. Let this sauce thicken and cool.

  3. In a large bowl, toss the cooled sauce with the 6 cups of sliced peaches, allowing excess liquid to drip out.

FOR THE BOTTOM LAYER:

  1. Mix the melted butter with all of the crushed cookies, and press into a 9x13in. pan.

FOR THE MIDDLE LAYER:

  1. With a handheld mixer, mix the cream cheese with the powdered sugar and cool whip. Spread the cream cheese layer over the cookie crust.

  2. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and chill for 3 hours or overnight.
  3. Add the peaches layer on top. Serve chilled.

Recipe Notes

Optional: You can chill the top layer separate from the two bottom layers. Just add the peach layer right before serving, to help keep the cookie crust from getting too soft from any excess liquid.
