"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."

"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."
