1 large box vanilla wafers finely crushed
1 cube butter softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
6-10 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 pint whipping cream
1/2 cup powder sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Press 2/3 of the wafer crumbs in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Mix butter and sugar together and carefully layer over wafer crumbs. Layer peaches on top of sugar. Whip the cream with the powder sugar and vanilla. Layer the whipped cream over the peaches. Top with remaining wafer crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours before serving.
**Another way to do the crust is to mix the sugar in with the crushed wafers then add the butter to the wafers and mix throughly, then press into the bottom of the pan. It is good either way, but I have been told by some that they prefer the sugar/butter in it's seperate layer. I do mix it in with the wafers to save a step.
***This is another Rowley Family favorite....coming from Jim's Mom. This recipe is one of the most requested that I have had. DO NOT use UNRIPE peaches. It won't be the same. I have to admit. UTAH peaches work the best for this.
