Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/3 cups flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Crisco shortening
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package cream cheese -- (8 ounce) softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk -- (14 ounce)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 cups peaches (sliced-fresh OR canned)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/3 cup lightly-packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Set oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9-inch pan.

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt.
Cut in the Crisco shortening with a pastry knife until crumbly; reserve 1 cup of the mixture for the topping.

Add in baking powder, eggs and vanilla to the remaining crumb mixture.

Beat on medium speed of an electric mixer for 2 minutes, or until smooth.

Spread evenly into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

For the filling and topping: beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and creamy.

Gradually add in the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and cinnamon; beat until smooth. Fold in peaches; spread evenly over cake.

To the reserved crumb mixture, add in nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon; mix well, and sprinkle over filling.

Bake for 30-35 minutes longer, or until set.
Serve warm.

This recipe looks great. I think the butter would just make it a bit "heavier" and richer, but no real reason it wouldn't turn out.

Am considering making this tonight. Major insomnia!

This sounds great, I am going to try it this weekend using butter/applesauce for the crisco. I think this would also be good in the fall with apples instead of peaches.

Did anyone get a chance to try this over the weekend? I still haven't made it yet, but it's high on my "to try" list. :D

I did. I thought it was quite good and despite saying to serve it warm, room termperature worked well too. (I used the Crisco.)
