So I bought some of these beautiful fruits and while we love to eat them fresh we still would like to treat ourselves with healthier dessert from time to time. I tried that cheesecake stuffed peaches recipe last year, it was so good that I think it might be a hit for this Fathers Day.
Cheesecake stuffed peach
The recipe was originally published in the August 2011 edition of Better Homes & Gardens magazine.
To make this you will need:
6 peaches, halved
1⁄4 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar, purchased or combine 3 tablespoons granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 15 x 10 x 1" baking pan with parchment paper; set aside.
Trim a very thin slice from the round side of each peach half so the halves will stand flat on the baking pan. Dip peach halves in melted butter to coat. Arrange peach halves, cut sides up, in prepared pan. Sprinkle cut sides of peaches with cinnamon-sugar; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese with a mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar, egg yolk & vanilla. Beat until combined. Spoon cream cheese mixture into peach centers.
Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until lightly browned & softened. Serve warm or at room temperature.
I sprinkled mine with powdered sugar:
