Peach Bavarian

1 Can (15.25 oz) sliced peaches in syrup
2 pkgs (3 oz) each peach or apricot jello
C sugar
2 C boiling water
1 5 almond extract
1 8 oz carton Cool Whip ( I used fat free)
additional peaches for garnish, optional

Drain peaches, reserving 2/3 C syrup. Chop peaches into small pieces and set aside. In a pot on the stove, dissolve gelatin and sugar in boiling water. Stir in reserved syrup. Chill until slightly thickened. Stir extract into cool whip and gently fold into gelatin mixture. Fold in peaches. Pour into a 6 C mold coated with pam (I use mayo to coat my dish) Chill until set. Unmold and garnish with additional peaches if desired. I make this in a pretty glass bowl and that works also.
