When they start selling peaches on the other side of the mountain, I start stocking up on Nilla Wafers since they are the only part of this recipe that I don’t keep on hand. It’s not that we don’t like them, they just disappear too quickly if I’m not constantly reminding that they are for Peach Dessert!
Last week we took a drive through the canyon and brought back a half bushel of peaches. They disappear so quickly, peach milkshakes, smoothies, on waffles and pancakes, and of course some made their way into dessert.
1 box Nilla Wafers, crushed (set aside 1/2 cup for the top)
1 cup sugar
1/4 c butter, softened
8-10 peaches skinned and sliced
1 pint whipping cream, whipped to a stiff peak
Beat the sugar, egg and butter till creamy then add the cookie crumbs. Mix together and press into a 9 x13″ pan. Add peaches, top with whip cream and sprinkle Nilla Wafer Crumbs on top. Keep refrigerated.
The Nilla Wafer crust is my favorite part of this recipe, and you may have noticed it has a raw egg. At first this bothered me until I remembered how much cookie dough I eat without thinking twice about it. If raw eggs aren’t your thing then this recipe probably isn’t for you, but if you’re a dough sneaker I promise Peach Dessert will not disappoint!
