How to Make Cheesecake with Fresh Peach Topping


  1. Peel, pit and slice peaches. Toss the peached into a bowl with brown sugar and transfer to the refrigerator until ready to use.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    In a food processor, process graham crackers and butter. Pulse until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
    Press to the bottom of an 8-inch cake pan (if you do not have a spring foam pan) and blind bake for about 5-8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
    Once cooled, wrap the cake pan in aluminum foil and place into a pan. Fill the pan with water until the water reaches halfway up the sides of the cake pan.
    Without cleaning out the food processor, combine all ingredients for the cheesecake filling. Process until the mixture is light and creamy. Pour into the prepared cake pan.
    Bake the cheesecake for about 40-45 minutes or until the center is set.
    Remove from the oven, then carefully remove the cake dish from the pan. Remove the foil and transfer to a wire rack, allowing it to cool completely.
    Top with fresh peaches. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving.
