Fresh Peach No-Bake Cheesecake

Guess what I did today for the first time. I bottled 17 quarts of peaches! I am so proud of myself. The peaches were from a patient at work. He brought in 2 big boxes full. Everyone took what they wanted and when nobody wanted anymore....I took the rest. I picked up a canner at a yard sale this summer with all the accessories for $5. So now I had no excuses. I woke up on this Labor Day and labored!

So far so good. It looks like they all sealed and they look great. I saved a few peaches to make this yummy cheesecake. It tastes like good old peaches and cream. Simply delicious.

Fresh Peach No-Bake Cheesecake

1 reduced fat graham cracker crust

11 ounces of 1/3 fat cream cheese (room temp)

1 cup powdered sugar

1 (8 0z.) container light whipped topping

Fresh peaches

sugar or Splenda

Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar in medium sized bowl. Fold in whipped topping. Put mixture into a ready made graham cracker crust. Refrigerate.

When ready to serve cut peaches and add 1 TBSP sugar or Spenda. Slightly mash the peaches and spread over pie or already cut slices.

This can of course be served with whatever topping you choose.

  3. When my girlfriend and I used to get together to help each other can - we had a blast. But then the rule was - no one could touch the jars until Thanksgiving - we wanted to at least look at the fruits of our labor for a while. She has gone a bit too far - she STILL has a can of beans up on her soffits, and that was 25 years ago! Gotta love her.

  18. Everyone over here has been talking about canning peaches. I so wish I had canning materials! I just have to buy a few fresh ones now and then. In fact I have some in my fridge right now that need to be used up. Maybe I'll have to try this!

  21. Melody! Do a "how to" post about canning! That would be awesome. I've never done it myself and am curious.

    Btw, this looks good. I'm not crazy about warm mushy fruit so this is more my speed. I'm thinking who even needs the crust?
