Layers of fresh peaches, almond cookies, and whipped mascarpone cream meld together in this take on an old-fashioned favorite. Make this when you have juicy, sweet ripe peaches. See our no-bake dessert tips.

It was ok. It sounded better than it ended up. Basically it is a trifle without the cake layer. In all fairness though, I think I missed the cake layer. The cookies are so thin that they just disappear and offer very little textural contrast. I don't agree that the whipped cream was not sweet enough. The best part is that this was not overly sweet. I loved the peaches and cream but just wanted some cake in there somewhere, ha ha.
This recipe as a waste of ingredients, particularly my very sweet, ripe fruit. Thankfully, I made half of the recipe. After having only one serving, I dumped the rest! The whole thing was flavorless, like eating a mouthful of nothing with not sweet enough whipped cream. The peaches needed some lemon & zest, the cream mixture needed almond extract and the cookies disintegrated into mushy slime. Maybe more sugar, overall -- and I am not a favor of overly sweet desserts!
