Peaches and Cream Custard Recipe

Peaches and Cream Custard is so good and so easy to make!  This custard recipe is a take-off from my Peaches and Cream Pie recipe.

I created this peach dish because I did not want to take the time to make pie crust, and I did not have any store-brought pie crusts in the freezer.  This dish would be great for either breakfast or a dessert.  A great way to use the summer bounty of fresh peaches, plus this dish makes a great summer treat to serve your family and friends.
