Fresh Peach Delight is a refreshing layered dessert. Graham cracker crust is followed by a layer of fresh peach and jello filling, finished with a layer of a cream cheese/cool whip mixture, and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs on top. This easy peach tart recipe truly tastes like summer!


For graham cracker crust and topping:

  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter-melted
  • 6 tablespoons sugar

For peach filling :

  • 5 cups fresh peaches-peeled and diced into 1 inch peaces (about 67 medium peaches)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (3 oz.) package peach jello

For cheesecake layer:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese-room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 (8 oz) carton cool whip


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. In a bowl combine crushed graham crackers and 6 tablespoons sugar. Add melted butter and stir with a fork until all crumbs are moistened. Take out 1 1/2 cup crumbs and set aside for topping.
  2. Press the remaining crumbs into the bottom of a 13×9 inch baking dish bake for 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a sauce pan combine water, 1 cup sugar and cornstarch, stir well and bring to a boil. Add the package of peach jello and stir to dissolve. Remove the mixture from heat and allow to cool completely, then add diced peaches, stir and pour over cooled crust. Place in the fridge until set (about 4 hours).
  4. Cream together powdered sugar, cream cheese and vanilla. Fold in cool whip and spread over the top of peach filling. Place in the fridge to set and top with the 1 1/2 cup reserved graham cracker crumb mixture before serving.
