Peaches and cream mini desserts are a fun summer treat!  Peach gelatin is mixed with cream cheese, whipped cream and Del Monte peaches.  This delicious peach mixture is layered between mini vanilla cookies for a cool and refreshing peaches and cream treat.

Peaches and Cream Mini Dessert

One of the things I look forward to most in the summer is peaches. There is nothing like eating a fresh peach! I love to make desserts with peaches, too, but I rarely do it because peeling and pitting them is such a time consuming chore.  When Del Monte offered to send me a variety of their canned fruits and vegetables to create a recipe with, I knew I wanted to make a peach dessert that didn’t require all that peeling.

Del Monte‘s canned peaches are packed at the peak of ripeness. With the same essential nutrients as fresh, Del Monte makes it simple to incorporate a full serving of fruits and vegetables into your recipe repertoire.  Del Monte can help add a creative twist to your meals and save you time in the process.

Peaches and Cream Mini Dessert

I made the peaches and cream desserts in small glasses because everything is cute when it’s small! But you could easily adapt this recipe for a larger dish or containers.  You could also serve this right away but they do set up nicely when refrigerated.  They also passed the kid taste test with flying colors!
