Peaches and Cream Pie... delicious, pretty, and easy. And almost no cooking required!

I found the recipe online years ago (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/peaches-and-cream-pie-i/detail.aspx), and I had forgotten about it until we celebrated Pi Day at work, and now it is requested for every Pot Luck lunch or bake sale.

I shall now show you how easy it is, and you can impress your friends and family.

Step 1: The Ingredients

Picture of The Ingredients
The shopping list is pretty straightforward:

I am showing the measurements to make 1 9" pie - you may double it easily, I think I've only made one pie, once.

*     1 Graham Cracker Crust - pre-made, or homemade.
*     1 4oz package of Cream Cheese (regular or light) - the block kind - softened
*     1/2 cup Icing Sugar
*     1/2 cup Non-Dairy Whipped Topping - thawed
*     1 3oz (85 grams) package of Peach Gelatin powder
*     1 3oz (85 grams) package of Vanilla Pudding powder* - the kind that needs to be cooked
*     1 1/4 cups water
*     1 15oz can of sliced Peaches (the big can) - drained

I can only get Vanilla Pudding powder in a 4.5oz (135 grams) box.
I use a scale and weigh out the powder, but for the purposes of this Instructable, I measured it out.
Loosely scooped - 1/2 cup, plus 2.5 Tablespoons = approximately 3oz.

Step 2: The Utensils

You will need:

*     Bowl
*     Mixer (or strong arms and a good spoon!)
*     Spatula
*     Can Opener
*     Saucepan
*     Whisk
*     Ladle

For spreading the "cream" layer - you may wish to use a smaller spoon or knife, or continue with the spatula. Whatever you are comfortable with.

You may wish to use a pot holder or oven mitt for the cooking part. If you are comfortable without, that's ok - just be safe and careful - sticky sugar burns are bad, bad, bad, and no amount of yummy peach pie will make it feel better.

Very nice. Peaches are my #2 favorite (cherry is #1). I like your rat picture avatar. I've had pet rats most of my life except the last few years. A friend's is having offspring soon so that ought change. Thanks for posting.

I imagine you could do this recipe with cherries, if you were so inclined. Or as most people have discovered, it's better to make 2 because they go rather quickly... make one of each! :-D
My avatar is actually a hamster, but thank you! I've yet to have a pet rat, but I had a friend with pet rats. Pretty nifty critters.

you think gelatin can work without the pudding?
BayRatt (author)  yabiang8 months ago
I imagine it would, but the texture and flavour would be different... and it might be harder to pour over the pie & have it stay - since it tends to be more liquid at first. Might be worth a try though!
