Peach Caramel Blondie Cheesecake
This Peach Caramel Blondie Cheesecake is the stuff dreams are made of. A peach and cinnamon filled blondie is topped with caramel no bake cheesecake, cinnamon peaches and caramel sauce. There is no better way to enjoy some peaches this summer!
Well I hope everyone had a great fourth of July weekend. We went to visit my parents and see my grandmother. It had been a while since we’d been to visit, so it was quite nice. It’d also been years since we’d spent the fourth there, so it was nice to be back and see the fireworks. My parents have lived in the same house for about 20 years, so the fireworks show is the one I’ve been seeing since I was kid and their neighborhood puts on a great show.
Thursday was also my grandmother’s 85th birthday. We had good food and a lemon cake – her favorite. And yes, I made it. 🙂
Over the weekend, my grandmother reminded me how we used to pretend like her birthday was also my birthday when I was kid. Since my birthday is on Christmas day, she and my mom have always felt like I got shafted. So they’d give me some things for her birthday in July and I’d help blow out the candles on the cake. They’d call it a joint birthday.
Clearly I was spoiled – and loved.
So when we were shopping this weekend, it cracked me up that every time I saw something I might like to have, my grandmother’s response was, “Well, do you want me to get it for your birthday?”
I came home with a new bathing suit and jeans.
Boy do I love that woman. 🙂
I’m also a pretty big fan of this Peach Caramel Blondie Cheesecake. It’s my Caramel Apple Blondie Cheesecake’s favorite cousin.
The apple one has been so popular, I decided it needed a summertime friend. And what better than peaches?
The blondie is insanely moist. I added more peaches to this blondie, than there was apple in the other one and the extra moisture keeps the blondie extra tasty and fresh.
Once the blondie is cooled, it’s topped with a caramel-filled no bake cheesecake. To die for. I could seriously cover myself in caramel – it’s easily a favorite. And this caramel is nice because it’s very simple to make. Instead of cooking white sugar, t’s made with brown sugar.
The blondie and cheesecake are refrigerated until firm, then comes the peach fun. Peel those babies, slice them and cook them with plenty of cinnamon. I even added a touch of spiced rum in them, but that’s optional. 🙂
I cooked them for about 10 minutes, but you could cook them for less time if you’d prefer to have them a little firmer. Mine were fairly soft. It would also depend on how ripe they are. Softer peaches wouldn’t need to cook quite as long, so keep that in mind.
I like to pipe the whipped cream around the edge of the cheesecake first and then fill in the center with the cooled peaches and drizzle them with a little more caramel sauce. You can serve the blondie cheesecake with the peaches warm, or refrigerate it and serve it later. I like it both ways.
This Peach Caramel Blondie Cheesecake is sure to be a hit with everyone! The combination of cinnamon and peaches, and the chewy blondie with a smooth, creamy cheesecake is totally amazing. It’ll only take one bite to convince you not to share the rest. 🙂
