Peach Bavarian

Fruit molds are my specialty. This one, with its refreshing peach taste, makes a colorful salad or dessert. —Adeline Piscitelli, Sayreville, New Jersey

    Very good. I also omitted the sugar and reduced the amount of almond extract. Will definitely be making this again.

    I made this Peach Bavarian yesterday, with only a drop of almond extract, and everyone loved it. It has a nice peach flavor and a super creamy consistency. I will be making this again soon!

    Not a family favorite so probably won’t make again. I made it as directed except only a half tsp. of Almond flavor instead of a full tsp. It was still plenty.

    This has been a favorite recipe in our home since it first appeared in TOH! I made it that month,

    Light airy salad, compliment to Easter dinner. Very pretty too! I would skip the extra sugar. I used light cool whip and I could see using sugar free peach jello the next time to make it diabetic friendly. I think this would be great for a baby shower.

    This was as beautiful as it was tasty and a light, refreshing salad for our Easter dinner. I doubled the recipe and used a Bundt pan as the mold. I presented it on a glass footed tray surrounded by red lettuce around its edges. I did omit the sugar and did not double the almond extract. It was perfect and enjoyed by all.

    Does anyone know whether you have to use the frozen whipped topping? Can you make your own whipped cream from real cream? THank you

    This is delicious even without the added sugar and peach juice!

    This is very good! I have made it several times and always get compliments. I add only 1/2 tsp almond extract as I think 1 tsp can be overwhelming.
