Paradise Peach Cake
1/2 cup pecans
5 peaches
1/2 cup chopped dried pineapple
3/4 cup chopped fresh pineapple
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice (I don't use)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I don't use)
2/3 cup pitted soft dates, such as Med-Jool
1 1/2 cup fresh berries for garnish (I used blue)
1 (9") Almond-Pecan Pie Crust (see above)

In a small bowl, cover pecans with water and soak for 8 to 12 hours. Drain
and rinse. Set aside. Peel and halve peaches, reserving skin. Remove pit
and thinly slice flesh. Set aside. In a food processor or blender, blend
peach skin with pecans, dried and fresh pineapple, spices and dates. In pie
shell, layer 1/2 of peach slices in a fanned spiral (I throw in). Evenly
spread 1/2 of pineapple mixture over peach slices. Repeat with remaining
peach slices and pineapple mixture. (I came out with three layers ending
with peaches.) Garnish with fresh berries of your choice. Serve immediately
or refrigerate and serve chilled. It sounds time consuming, but it really
