Beautiful Peachy Pie

This pie will impress from the moment you take it out of the refrigerator. The top is a vibrant orange with peach slices displayed attractively. Once the pie is sliced, your guests will see the hidden cream cheese layer down below. This would make a magnificent summer dessert or you could use it to bring in a little sunshine in the dead of winter. Serve it on simple plates so the pie really shines. This dessert offers the perfect combination of textures, colors, and flavors. Let it speak for itself; your guests will rave over this delightful pie.

Get a large graham cracker crust to hold all the fillings, otherwise, you may find yourself with a little leftover. You could also get small graham cracker crusts and make individual sizes. You could also play with the flavors. Use strawberry slices in strawberry Jello if you like or mandarin orange segments in orange Jello. If you like the peaches but cannot find peach Jello in your local market, you can use apricot or orange flavor Jello instead.

This is such a simple recipe and it makes an absolutely stunning dessert. Take it to potlucks or bake sales for instant appreciation. Serve it for holidays or special occasions. Make it just because you want something pretty for dessert. This stunning recipe will impress anyone who sees it and takes a bite. The creamy bottom layer contrasts perfectly with the Jello layer, both visually and in your mouth. While you are chewing the peaches, the creamy layer will melt in your mouth, combining flavors and making every bite special. Go ahead and try this recipe as a trial run with your family. Once you know they love it, you can make it again for a special evening. You will have worked out all the preparation and be prepared for its wonderful flavor. It is always a good idea to try out new recipes before you are under any pressure to perform in front of guests.
