What You'll Need

  • Cake Layer
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cream Cheese Layer
  • 1 (8-ounce) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Filling
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen peaches, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Glaze
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter and 2 cups granulated sugar until fluffy. Beat in 4 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add flour and salt; mix well and set batter aside. 
  3. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until creamy. Add 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla; mix until smooth. Spread about 2-1/2 cups batter into the baking dish. Pour cream cheese filling evenly on top. 
  4. In a medium bowl, combine peaches, 1 tablespoon flour, and cinnamon; mix well. Spoon peach mixture evenly over cream cheese filling. Drop remaining batter on top of pie filling, spreading gently (does not have to cover entire top). 
  5. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool. Refrigerate for 1 hour for easier cutting. To make glaze, in a small bowl, whisk confectioners' sugar, milk, and almond extract until smooth. Drizzle over top and serve.

Peaches and Cream Squares - we have a peach tree in our yard. Can I use fresh peaches off the tree for this receipt and if so do I have to change any of the ingredients or the quantities?

Hi there! We're not sure how many peaches to slice, because it will depend on the size of the peaches, but everything else stays the same. Enjoy!

Lincoln's Lemon Custard Pie

Lemon custard pie was one of Honest Abe's favorites. His first taste of it came from Nancy Breedlove, the owner of a hotel he frequently stayed at. He loved her lemon custard pie so much, he asked her to share the recipe. Our version may not be exactly the one that's been used at the White House for years since, but it's still amazing!
