Layered Peach Dessert

Hi Everyone! This blog is being seriously neglected and I am feeling a little sad! I'm at the point where I am sick of the same old recipes, so get posting ladies...

I have a delicious recipe to share (well, I thought it was delicious!) I stole the recipe and the picture from here. If you love fresh peaches, then you will love this. There are a few things I will change next time I make it, but I'll give you the recipe first...

Layered Peach Dessert

1 pkg. Vanilla wafers, finely crushed

1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter, softened
10 fresh peaches, sliced

1 pt. whipping cream
½ cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla

Place half of the crumbs in a 9x13 pan. Whip cream cheese, sugar, and butter together until smooth. Drop by spoonfuls over the crumbs. Spread carefully using a spoon dipped in hot water. Keep dipping the spoon in the water so the mixture doesn't stick to it. The crumbs will slide around, but that is okay. It doesn't need to be perfectly smooth. Arrange the sliced peaches over the top. Whip the cream and add sugar and vanilla. Spread over the peaches. Sprinkle last half of crumbs over top. Cover and chill 8 hours, or over night.

Okay. I halved this recipe because I didn't want to eat a whole thing by myself. Here's what I would change... The whipped topping is already sweet enough (I used Dream Whip), I wouldn't add the 1/2 cup of sugar - I would also add a few more peaches - 7 instead of 5, or 12 instead of 10. It is very, very yummy and peaches are so delicious right now!
