You can take the girl out of the south, but you can’t take the peach pie out of the girl. What happens next is a crash of cultures. When you combine the best of both worlds, you get this perfect peach cheesecake. It’s thick and creamy the way a New Yorker would like, but make no mistake. The fresh peach marmalade topping is a home-style homerun. No matter where you are, this slice is universally loved.
