Sunny Peaches & Cream Pie Recipe

Think of this pie as a summer dessert, but don't rule it out for the holidays—with strawberries and strawberry gelatin. —Lorraine Wright, Grand Forks, British Columbia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 5 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings

"This pie is amazing! It's definitely a keeper. It was so refreshing on a hot day. It's simple to make and the ingredients are reasonably priced. I did double the filling part of the recipe as I bought a pre-made pie crust which is a little larger than the standard size."

"This recipe looks absolutely amazing! I definitely want to make it this weekend. I don't like gelatin (I'm a vegetarian). Can I just use slices of peaches instead or do you a different recommendation?"

"This has been a favorite pie of ours for several years. We like oranges with orange jello, and strawberries with stawberry jello, but you can use any flavor of jello and fruit you want. It is delicious, even with sugar free jello."

"I really like the crust and cream cheese filling together, and I love the jello topping. I do not feel like they fit together well though. It's kind of like eating Jello with crust and a dab of cream cheese, but the parts are so good that it is still okay thrown together. I'll definitely make the jello topping by itself in the future, and probably the cream cheese pie part with something else on top."

"I used canned peaches because we can't get a good summer peach in our area. I doubled the cream cheese filling layer because our family likes cheesecake. It had a great taste. I will make this recipe again! Even added additional whipped topping on top the gelatin layer once cooled and it gave an extra little "something.""

"Very good. I have used diced peaches instead of sliced and it works great, also."

"This is the perfect summer time pie. I was low on graham cracker crumbs so I had to supplement the crust with plain bread crumbs. It worked. The only other change I made was that I added a little vanilla extract to the filling. I used to love orange Dreamsicles and I was trying to get that orangey-vanilla flavor. My family loved this pie. I might try blueberries with blueberry flavored gelatin. Thank you for sharing this."

"I used a pre-made pie crust from the grocery store to save time. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a tee and it turned out beautifully. With our fresh Washington State peaches this couldn't have been simpler or more delicious. My 91-year-old dad ate 3 pieces!! Of course we hadn't fed him in a week so he was pretty hungry. I'm kidding!! Great recipe."
