Peach Treat

This was a tasty, refreshing little treat but waaaay too much for my family of two. Next time I will definitely half the recipe.

Of course I screwed up the recipe. SMH, I really don't know how I manage sometimes! LOL Check out A Little Tipsy for the original recipe. Below is how mine turned out. It went a little something like this:

  •  2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 pkg graham crackers, crushed
  • 1/3 cups oats
  • 7-8 large peaches 
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice 
  •  Cool Whip 
  • Mix graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, oats, and butter together. Put a layer in the bottom of your pan, saving some to sprinkle on top. 
  • Mix the lemon juice with the can of sweetened condensed milk. Pour over the peaches and mix until peaches are coated. 
  • Pour peach mixture into pan over crust. 
  • Top with Cool Whip
  • Sprinkle with left over crust mixture. 
Mine looked more like this one.

So the original recipe called for whipping cream, I am assuming to make your own whipped topping. My oversight of that ingredient and getting Cool Whip instead is sort of comical. It was probably a Freudian slip. See, I love Cool Whip. I have ever since I was a kid. If we have it, I will sneak a spoon full from time to time and have even been known to have a bowl of it like ice cream. I LOVE it.

Anyway, it turned out fine. I assume not much different than the original recipe. The lemon was a little overbearing on the first day, but seemed to have not been as bad the second day. It doesn't have a very long shelf life so either eat it fast or prepare it for when you are planning to have company.

  1. Looks yummy and not too overwhelming with unhealthy sweetness.. healthy sweetness because of the peaches. :)
