    Lesley Morton's Note:

    Wonderful rich cool dessert with fresh peaches. It came from a booklet, "Delicious Desserts Made Easy", put out by Borden in 1981. I keep losing my dog-earred copy so now I try to put it all on my recipe program.

      This was very delicious, although very sweet and rich. I prefer using fresh peaches, not canned, Yellow and not white. I am going to try using Amaretto instead of the sherry next time. I also used 1/2 c. of rasberry preserves, seedless. I think the almonds are NOT optional. Toast blanched almonds in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes- it makes the dish! I also used a 3.2 quart (2 qt. would have been too small) glass pyrex oval dish, and it was overflowing!

      This is good! I made this for Easter dinner. I have to say, there was also a chocolate peanut type of trifle served as well, but this bowl was declared "no more left" first! My mother in law was in heaven and demanded this recipe; as she is not one to go out of her way to make such a fuss about such a thing. She took about a pint full of leftovers of this dessert, not to mention the two helpings she had at dessert time! :) I used orange juice rather than sherry. I also used nectarines (all they had available in store). Sliced, sprinkled with sugar and tossed, then added them to dessert. Great recipe, thanks for posting!

      I have made this recipe many times and it is a huge hit! I use Palmers Raspberry All Fruit so I don't have any seeds. When I want to make it low cal I switch to Cool Whip use the pudding package directions.
