No Cook Peaches and Cream Tart

Peaches and Cream Tart

Peaches and Cream. In our society, this phrase has come to mean wonderful, delicious and delightful, as in “it was all peaches and cream.” Also shortened to “it was just peachy!”

I couldn’t agree more that all things peach symbolize things most delightful in this world.

I can hardly wait until peaches are in season each year. I walk through the produce section of the grocery store just to whiff peaches again and again.

This peaches and cream tart takes just minutes to put together and no baking or cooking of any kind. I don’t know why I never thought of using coconut cookies for the crust. After all, graham crackers mAke a fabulous crust. Just whirl coconut macaroons in a food processor and drizzle in some butter and you’re done!

It is cool, creamy and has just the perfect touch of sweetness. I will be making it again and again this summer!

    this looks yummy – one question. You state to whip the cream and set aside, then combine the other ingredients? What happens to the cream that is whipped? does it get incorporated back into the other ingredients (cream cheese sugar, lemon juice, etc?) Can you clarify, looking to make this for potluck tonight, so your response is appreciated.

    I read the recipe several times and can’t figure out what to do with the whipped cream. Do we mix it in with the whipped cream cheese mixture or place it over it to chill or set the peaches or nectarines on top of the cooled cream cheese and then use the cream on individual servings? I can’t wait to make this recipe:).
