Peaches & Cream Cheese Cake (Pie)?

During late winter and early spring, on those days that the sun decides to shine and all the birds come out to play, and you long for the days of summer and home-made ice cream or berry desserts, those are the days that I make this dessert.  It's like a little bit of sunshine.  

Peaches & Cream Cheese Cake (but it looks like a pie)

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 3 oz. pkg vanilla pudding mix (not instant!)
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 3 T. butter (soft)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk

Mix ingredients on medium speed for two minutes and pour into greased 9 or 10 inch pie plate

  • 15-20 oz. can sliced peaches (drain, but reserve juice)

Place peaches over batter

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 T. reserved peach juice

Beat 2 minutes on medium speed and spoon over peaches, leaving a border around the edge.

  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon

Combine and sprinkle over cream cheese filling.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until crust is golden brown.  Store in refrigerator.  

I like this dessert best the next day after it is very cold; Enjoy!
