"Made with fresh peaches, it was easy and quite tasty. Next time I will slice peaches thinner to make cutting into them when eating a bit easier. Quite a light and refreshing dessert."

"We love this dessert! My brother had it for his birthday dessert and my grandmother has brought it over for a special treat many a time. Delicious and yummy......I can never have just one piece! Wish I could do something about the fat and calories though, but otherwise, a fantastic dessert!"

"I modified it by making a graham cracker crust and using apricot gelatin. I also used canned peaches and left out the pineapple juice. The gelatin thickened up nicely and I only refrigerated it for about 4 hours before serving it. It was a big hit."
