My husband is a diabetic & he really liked this dessert. I don't care for store bought graham cracker crust - so I made my own, but that's just a personal choice. Other than that I followed the exact recipe. It was a nice light & fresh summer dessert. Next time I may try the butterscotch pudding as suggested - or even skip the crust altogether and serve in pudding cups with a light sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs instead. Regardless, my husband says thanks!

It was very good but I think the recipe should say cook peaches a little ahead of time since you want them room tempersture. P.S.

Very quick and easy to make. Very tasty. I used Butterscotch pudding mix.. the only flavor I had on hand and it still turned out good.

they were easy to make- I just did a little different variation and they were still good.
