I first made them when I was in high school for a supper when my grandmother and her friend Aunt Susan arrived at our home for a visit. I think the recipe was from a Betty Crocker set of recipes cards that my mom got my subscription every month.
Anyway, there’s not much of a recipe that I go by anymore. You can use however many peach halves and how much cream cheese you need for who you’re serving.
I used softened cream cheese mixed with finely diced pecans, a little vanilla and a little powdered sugar to taste. Then put a rounded tablespoon of cream cheese each peach half. Then chill them until it’s time to serve them.
I did find this YouTube video where she makes them and it’s pretty much how I do except I think she uses a pastry bag to pipe the cream cheese into the peach halves.
Heidi, this YouTuber, uses 2 large can of peaches (28 ounce or so), 8 ounces of cream cheese and 1/4 c powdered sugar.
About 1/3 cup finely diced pecans is what I would use for this amount.
Canned Peach halves are kind of hard to find nowadays. They were so popular when I was growing up. I always liked when the school cafeteria had peach halves.
Do any of y’all remember eating them?
Anyway, this is an easy dessert or salad that can be made ahead and most everyone will like it.
Granddaughter Elizabeth especially likes it 🥰
