A delicious and different peach dessert with a flour and butter crust and a custard-y layer on top.
1 cup all purpose flour
2 Tablespoons sugar [need more later]
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened (1/2 stick)
1 1/2 cups sliced peaches, 2 medium-sized [canned ok]*
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large egg yolks
1 cup heavy whipping cream
[*Pat's note: I used a 32 ounce jar of home canned peaches, drained, and it was great.]
Heat oven to 400° F.
Mix flour, 2 Tablespoons sugar, salt and baking powder.
Cut in margarine, using fork or pastry blender until crumbly.
Pat mixture firmly and evenly in bottom and halfway up sides of ungreased square 8-inch pan.
Arrange peaches in pan.
Mix 1/3 cup sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over peaches.
Bake 15 minutes.
Beat egg yolks and whipping cream; pour over peaches.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until custard is set and edges are light brown.
Refrigerate any remaining dessert.

[This is one of]three of the dessert recipes that I took to work for "judging" and then my co-host and I talked about them on-air and gave out the recipes. The cheesecake was the biggest hit as it had a wonderful base made with a cake mix, and the cheesecake layer wasn't thick and overwhelming, and the chocolate on top just set it off nicely. I took home what was left of the orange poppyseed cake, and I literally melt for all things citrus. My co-host loved the peach dessert. She commented that the custard tasted almost like a creme brulee. I used canned peaches as I found that the fresh peaches this year weren't that nice. Anyways I hope you enjoy, and Tuesday's show will be devoted to "on the go recipes" and Friday's will be listener's favorites.
