IOWA FRESH PEACH DELIGHT

This delicious recipe is from some old Iowa church dinners. This recipe may be old but it is still yummy!

Crust:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 stick butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Combine all ingredients and put in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, stirring a couple of times before pressing into a crust.

Filling:

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
6 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
2 cups fresh peaches, crushed
6 egg whites
1/4 tsp almond flavoring

Dissolve gelatin in the cold water; set aside.

In a heavy saucpan cook the lemon juice, salt, egg yolks, and 3/4 cup of the sugar together until the mixture coats a spoon. Add the dissolved gelatin to the mixture and allow to cool. After the mixture has cooled had the crushed peaches.

Beat the egg whites until foamy; slowly add the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar along with the almond flavoring. Beat until the egg whites form stiff peaks. Fold the egg white mixture into the custard mixture and pour over the crust. Chill thoroughly.

Topping:

1/2 cup whipping cream
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp almond flavoring
fresh sliced peaches for garnish

Beat the whipping cream with the sugar until stiff. Add the almond flavoring. Spread the mixture over the filling. Garnish with fresh peach slices.
