No Bake Peach Cheesecake with a Cookie Crust

For Father’s Day I wanted to make a dessert for my Dad that would knock his socks off.  There are two things I know that my Dad absolutely loves, and that’s pound cake and peaches.  I made him a Peach Pound Cake awhile back so I so I wanted to come up with something different.  So what to do, what to do?  When in doubt, go big.  So I decided to make two desserts – a pound cake and a peach dessert.

My Dad said this No Bake Peach Cheesecake was delicious!  I’m so glad I chose this recipe to make for him.  It was fresh and tasty and perfect.

It’s been stinkin’ hot here in the Pacific Northwest.  (Like, unnaturally hot!)  So I love that this is a no bake dessert.

Make your cookie layer.

Add your cheesecake layer.

Now make your sauce.  Mine wasn’t thickening up at all so I added a packet of unflavored gelatin.  That seemed to do the trick.  Pour the sauce over the cheesecake layer and place in the fridge.  Please note – my peaches were ripe and yummy.  For some reason they look green in this picture.

I wish my pictures were better.  I took this dessert to my brother’s house and didn’t think it would be good to cut a square out of it first.
