Peaches and Cream Dessert

Perfect Pairing:  Bowl and spoon


Each summer my best friend makes the journey to the lake with her sweet family for our yearly get together.  They are the best guests, always jumping up to help, bringing food, etc.  Last summer I asked Jill to bring a dessert and she said her husband requested her sopapilla cheesecake.  Oh goodness, was this thing delicious.  It was a super simple dessert of crescent rolls, cheesecake filling and a topping of cinnamon and sugar.  All good things.

Around the same time my parents received a large delivery of peaches.  I was using peaches in everything…. Peach salsa, peach cobbler, on cereal, in yogurt, etc.  I decided to try adding them to the sopapilla cheesecake.  It ended up being a very good idea!  I made a few other alterations to the recipe like reducing the butter and sugar in the topping. 



The original version served up nicely in perfect pieces, the peach version did not.  It was more of a bowl and spoon situation.  It was almost like a peach cobbler, but with a creamy cheesecake-y filling.  Yum.  Perfect summer dessert.

Peaches and Cream Dessert

Lindsay at Perfecting the Pairing (based on this recipe from AllRecipes)


  • 2 cans (8 oz each) crescent rolls
  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese (light is fine), softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 large peaches, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 2 Tb sugar
  • Sprinkle of fruit fresh (optional)
  • 4 Tb butter, melted
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.  Spread out one can of crescent rolls in the pan so it covers the bottom.  Pinch together the seams.  In a mixing bowl combine the softened cream cheese, one cup sugar and vanilla.  Mix until completely combined.  Pour over the crescent rolls and spread to distribute evenly.

In a medium bowl toss the peaches, two tablespoons sugar, and the fruit fresh, if using.  Pour the peaches evenly over the cream cheese mixture.  Gently place the remaining crescent rolls across the top, pinching seams. 

In a small bowl combing the melted butter, ¼ cup sugar, and cinnamon.  Stir well and drizzle over the top of the rolls.  Bake for 30 minutes, until the rolls have browned on top.  Allow to cool slightly before serving.

  2. I have viewed that smart real estate agents all over the place are getting set to FSBO Marketing. They are noticing that it�s in addition to placing a sign in the front place. It�s really in relation to building associations with these dealers who sooner or later will become consumers. So, once you give your time and effort to helping these traders go it alone � the �Law regarding Reciprocity� kicks in. Thanks for your blog post. NayaShopi
