I find this recipe is delicious, but you should be careful where you get the peaches. My family gets them from a group of Amish people who sell produce every once in a while, and they are always so good.

The recipe sounds yummy but the cholesterol is over the top. I could use no fat cool whip but I don't thnk it would bring the count down very much...any suggestions out there?

I added Peach Liqueir to the sauce with a tad bit of cornstarch for thickener. I also doubled the recipe. We loved it Thanks

I would indeed make the peach sauce again, as it is delicious. I would prefer to serve it over ice cream though, as my family does not like pound cake, which is kind of sad.
