Peachescherries, grapes, pears and pineapple, with some help from marshmallows, gang up on cream cheese and fresh whipped cream to form a most pleasant summer treat.
Instead of portioning out individual servings in paper baking cupsthe entire fruit salad may be spread in a 9X11 pan and frozen. It might need to thaw slightly before slicing. Serve while still frozen. If using canned peaches, I prefer to get sliced peaches and then dice them into about 1 inch cubes. I find canned diced peaches too soft.

Whip softened cream cheese and powdered sugar. Blend in mayonnaise. When well blended, add flavorings. Fold in drained fruits and marshmallows.
Whip cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in. Don’t stir. I put in a couple of drops of red food coloring to tint it pink. Scoop into paper baking cups. Freeze overnight. Remove paper baking cups before serving.
