Pan: 9" springform pan Crust: In a medium-size bowl, combine the vanilla

fork, or pastry blender. Press or pat the mixture onto the bottom and

minutes. Filling: In a large bowl, beat the cottage cheese, sugar, and
eggs until smooth. Add the vanilla and light cream and continue to beat
until smooth and fairly thick. Gently fold in the crushed peaches. Pour
the mixture into the chilled pan. Place the springform pan inside of a
larger pan containing 1 inch of water and bake in a preheated 325 degree
oven for 1-1/2 hours. Transfer the cake to a wire rack and allow to cool
for 30 minutes. Topping: In a small mixing bowl, beat the sour cream and
sugar until smooth. Spread the mixture evenly over the top of the cake and
bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5 minutes. Transfer the cake to a
wire rack and let cool completely. Remove the sides of the springform pan
and decor ate the top of the cake with the sliced peaches. Refrigerate
overnight. Remove the cake from the refrigerator 2 hours before serving.
