Peach Kuchen Recipe

"KUCHEN IS a filling dessert for this German meal. It's not too sweet, and you can use virtually any of you favorite fruits. As a child, I took great pride in arranging the fruit in the pan. We always made this dessert on the same day of the meal so it would be warm and fresh. A dollop of whipped cream on top was an added treat!

"This dessert was a big hit with my teenage daughters German class. I used fresh peaches from our backyard tree and added a dash of almond extract. This is definitely a keeper!"

"My grandmother came from Germany, and we had kuchen(s) for every fruit that was in season all summer. Made this with blueberries - it was wonderful! I would put more sugar in the crust next time, but it tasted very similar to what she used to make. YUM!! (I used Daisy light sour cream.)"
