Lazy Day Peach Cheesecake

I am taking it easy today; no involved recipes. Yes, I am having a totally lazy day and there is not any dessert made for supper. How about a no bake cheesecake with peach slices on top? Dessert does not get any easier than this basic cheesecake!

This is a great beginner's recipe that is simple enough for kids to make and assemble, or your non-cooking spouse. 

  • One box of name brand, no bake cheesecake Psst...Here is a clue, the name starts with a J.
  • five Tbsp. of margarine
  • two Tbsp. of granulated white sugar
  • one and a half cups of milk
  • one can of sliced peaches
  • one nine inch spring form cake pan
  • Follow directions on the cheesecake package for the crust.
  • Reserve a teaspoon of crust mix to sprinkle on top of the completed cheesecake.
  • Follow the package directions for the cheesecake filling.
  • After the filling thickens up, open a can of peach slices, pour the contents into a colander, and drain the peach slices.
  • Place the slices in a spiral around the outside edge of the cheesecake. 
  • Remove the spring form pan sides before serving and place the pan bottom and cheesecake onto a flat serving platter.
  • Dessert is ready.
