This is another recipe that I've been making forever and have baked it for many a holiday, baptism's, birthdays, showers, barbecues, name it - it's been there like a guest. I love when peaches are in season because it makes for a great dessert. But more often than not I use canned peaches (when peaches are not in season) in place of the fresh. These are refreshing with it's cake layer on the bottom and cheesecake layer on the top. It's not a heavy, weight-you-down dessert but a refreshing one. Hope you enjoy it.
