Amaretto Peach No Bake Cheesecake
In Michigan, we have an amazing peach season. There’s nothing like a juicy, ripe, fresh peach that’s recently been picked. And as much as they are amazing, my timing is never right. So from time to time when I make peach dishes I grab a can of peaches or use frozen. Timing is everything, right?
This delicious Amaretto Peach No Bake Cheesecake was a creation that hit me out of the blue one day. I adore Amaretto and the way it blends so nicely with many varieties of fruit and fruity drinks. Last holiday season I even made my own “cheater version” of Amaretto (it was super easy). I may just have to bring that recipe onto Snacks and Sips later this year.
Wouldn’t you agree that no bake desserts are such a huge gift during the summer months? We just had a weekend of 100+ degrees with the heat index, it was hazy, hot, humid and just plain ICK. In that kind of heat, there’s absolutely no way you’ll find me cranking up the oven and heating up my kitchen, even for dessert! It is simply not going to happen. But whipping up a no bake dessert? Yes, that will definitely happen.
This is a wonderful dessert to prepare ahead of time and freeze, especially if you are entertaining. Pull it out of the freezer into the refrigerator a couple of hours before serving. Now if you’d like to make a non-boozy version, I’ve got ya covered, no worries. Simply omit the Amaretto and add in the juice from the peaches to make a family-friendly version.
What is Amaretto? I know you may be wondering!
Amaretto is a sweet, almond-flavored liqueur originating in Italy.
What is Amaretto made from?

More recipes using Amaretto:
- 8 ounce Cream Cheese, softened
