Peach Cream Cheese Pie
Peach season means peach pie of any kind. I like them all! The cream cheese layer in this pie gives it a nice tart flavor. This pie doesn’t take long to make especially if you use a store bought crust:)
You will need a total of 8 medium sized peaches for this recipe.
- 1/2 cup peaches, pureed (you will need 2 medium sized peaches for this)
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (juice of large lemon)
- 1/2 cup cream cheese (half of an 8 oz block)
- 1/3 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 6 medium peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
- 8″ baked pie shell..make your own or buy a ready made crust.
- In blender puree two peaches that have been peeled, pitted and cut up. Set aside.
