Peach Cheesecake Squares

I just finished making peach jam (our very own peaches) and this is a delectable/delicious/and downright yummy dessert using it.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 – 8 0z. pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup peach jam
  • 3/4 cup pecan halves

To make the crust, combine the flour, brown sugar, chopped pecans and butter, mixing until crumbly. Keep 3/4 cup aside for the topping.

Press the remainder into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish that you have sprayed with Pam. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes until the edges are golden.

In  your mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla until completely smooth. Spread over the hot crust, and bake a further 15 minutes. Stir the jam until quite smooth and spread over the top.

Mix the pecans halves into the remaining crumb mixture and sprinkle over the top. and bake another 15 minutes.

Cool completely on a rack and chill t least 3 hours or overnight.

What did I tell  you? Yummy!
