Peach melba is an awesome dessert, but adding an Italian cheese to it makes it absolutely undescribable!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Peach & raspberries are a flavor marriage made in heaven! This dessert isn't only beautiful, it tastes out of this world. A fluffy whipped cream layer has a slight raspberry flavor. The raspberry mixture soaks into the yummy ladyfingers and peaches. The alcohol is not cooked out, but there isn't a harsh alcohol flavor. Guests will think it took hours to prepare. No need for them to know how easy it is to make.

Note: We used a bit too much raspberry mixture in the layers. We crushed extra ladyfingers and added a few extra peaches for a beautiful presentation. The Test Kitchen
