Peaches n’ Cream

Cool and light — this “dessert” is a perfect way to top off a meal. This topping is also great over warm cobblers, in place of ice cream. And any extra topping is really good added to hot chocolate!

  • 1 7.6-ounce can table cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 29-ounce can peaches
  • 1/2 cup granola
  1. Chill table cream and peaches for at least 1 hour.
  2. Pour cream into a bowl and stir in vanilla and powdered sugar.
  3. Spoon peaches into individual bowls and pour cream over the top.
  4. Sprinkle granola on top.
