Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.


8 servings

Teri Lindquist of Gurnee, Illinois gives a special treatment to canned peaches by filling them with a fluffy pink cream cheese mixture. "This light and pretty dessert is a family favorite that comes together in almost no time at all," she writes.


  • 1 can (29 ounces) peach halves
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 8 maraschino cherries with stems


  1. Drain peaches, reserving 2 tablespoons juice. Place one peach half on each lettuce leaf. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, cherry juice and reserved peach juice. Stir in walnuts. Spoon into peach halves; top with cherries.
