Peachy Dessert

Dear friends,

I wrote this recipe on my first post, which very few people read it!
It comes with the story of WHY my blog is name 
Condensed Love:

Once I had a few friends home for dinner, and my friend Justine kept asking me what was in my Peachy Dessert... I kept telling her it was "looove" and finally I said: "looove and CONDENSED MILK"!! And she said: it is 
"Condensed Love"...
I am from Brazil, and I say we put condensed milk in everything, lol!

So here it is my recipe for what I call "Peachy Dessert"!

Peachy Dessert
2 cans of condensed milk
2 cans of milk (use the cond. milk can to measure it)
3 heaping tbsp of corn starch dissolved in 1/2 can of milk
2 cans of carnation thick cream
2 cans of peaches in light syrup (or 1 big glass jar as you see here)
Maria biscuits or any tea biscuit will do (I used Arrowroot this time)

It is super easy!!!
Heat the condensed milk dissolved with milk in a sauce pan.
When it is starting to boil, stir in the corn starch dissolved with milk.
It should start thickening right the way. It should have the consistency of pudding.
Set aside.

Separate the peaches syrup from the peaches, and dip the biscuits in the syrup.
In a dish ( I use a rectangular dish, like the one I use for lasagna - but tis time I used a "nicer" one), start placing the
biscuits side by side. Pour half of the condensed milk cream on it. 

Put a layer of chopped peaches (I use about 2/3 of the peaches because inside the layers they keep fresher than on top).

Put another layer of biscuits.
Add the 2 cans of thick cream (make sure you discard that water that forms in the can - I don't know the English word for it) to the remaining condensed milk custard. Sometimes it get lumpy, because the thick cream is cold, the custard is warm... but it tastes smooth. Pour over the biscuits; add the rest of the peaches. 
Refrigerate for about 2 hours!

And yes, you can change the fruit, but I would not use fresh fruit except for berries in the summer. I have never tried with other fruits, by the way.
I hope you enjoy!!!

  4. Hello Claudine! Looks yummy...but I'm trying to loose my "winter extra kilos" as every year when winter is ending...haha.
    We like condensed milk a lot. Some days ago I made some biscuits with it and they were fantastic. I got the idea from the blog "Kanela y miel", you will like them!

  5. Oh my this is gooood! I should remember that this is a dessert so I have to eat a small portion only. If I could resist! :D

    1. Thank you, Lea!
      It is really good, and I make it in about 15-30 minutes!
      Because the custard is the only thing you actually have to "make".
