This was really, really good. I used white peaches and almond shortbread cookies. I did use the almond extract but didn't have a lemon so I subbed lime juice. Its very easy to make and very easy to eat.:o) I didn't serve it with the ice cream, as I thought it was good enough to stand alone. To me,it was a very easy way to get the flavors of peach cobbler in less than 1/4 the time. Whenever the BF uses the words, "this is very good," its a keeper in my house. Thanks for posting!
