I grew up eating Peach Ecstasy. It is the perfect summer dessert.
The recipe originates from one of my Dad’s patients years ago. She would bring it to him every Labor Day. She gave my mom the recipe and my mom has been making it for years now too.
The bottom has a buttery shortbread crust, topped with a cool whip/cream cheese mixture. The final top layer is peach pie filling mixed with canned peaches.
It is heaven.
The perfect summer dessert.

2 sticks melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans

1 15oz. can sliced peaches, drained

In a bowl mix together the flour and pecans. Pour in the butter, stir to combine.
Press the dough into a 9×13 casserole dish. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until light golden brown.
