Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Grease a 9 inch spring form pan

Step 2

In a food processor, pulse all ingredients until a crumbly texture. Press into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. While crust is baking, prepare filling.

Step 3

With electric beaters, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in sugar, vanilla and 2 Tbsp of peach schnapps. Reduce speed to low and add eggs, one at a time.

Step 4

While crust is still hot, stir remaining 2 Tbsp of schnapps into peach jam and spread over hot crust. Pour cheesecake mixture over jam and bake for 30 minutes, until set (but a little jiggly in center). Allow to cool to room temperature, then chill completely before slicing.

Step 5

For warm peaches, stir1 Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp granulated sugar over medium heat. Add 3 cups of peeled and sliced peaches and 3 Tbsp of peach liqueur. Serve on or beside slices of cheesecake.
