1/4 tsp salt (divided use)
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
3.5-ozs white chocolate, finely chopped
Cooking spray

Cream Cheese Filling
5-ozs 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed

Peach Filling/Topping

No-Bake Peach Pie Directions
Prepare crust
Place crumbs and 1/8 tsp salt in a food processor; process until combined.

Place butter and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High setting thirty (30) seconds; then, stir until chocolate is smooth.

Add melted chocolate to processor; pulse until combined. Press mixture into bottom and up sides of a (9-inch) pie plate coated with cooking spray. Freeze until set, about twenty (20) minutes.

Prepare cream cheese filling
Place cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at Medium speed until smooth. Gently fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread filling over bottom of pie crust.

Prepare peaches
Place fruit spread in a large microwave-safe bowl; microwave on High setting until bubbly, about thirty (30) seconds.

Stir in the remaining 1/8 tsp salt, the schnapps, and lemon juice. Add peach wedges; toss to combine. Chop some of this filling and spoon it into the cream cheese filling.

No-Bake Peach Pie Notes

  • Test it: Replace vanilla extract with almond extract.

  • Test it: Brandy firm, fresh peaches. Then, substitute Peach Brandy or Southern Comfort for the peach schnapps and the Brandied Peaches for the overripe ones in the Peach Filling.
