This recipe is wonderful. Everytime I make it, I am asked for the recipe. I cut the peaches into chunks and sometimes I use nuts and sometimes I don't but it is always great!

I used pecans instead of cashews. Everyone at my dinner table was stating how yummy the dish was. Great recipe and it helped in filling the men.

This is a great dish with a twist! Our whole family enjoyed it. I would cut the peaches smaller next time though.

I have made this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner for years! I still get compliments from family members who eat it every year. I add extra peaches to satisfy my family's taste!
