Baked Peaches 2011

This is the season for peaches and now is the time to make good use of them with an updated recipe.

You will need:

  • 6 peaches, halved
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 3-4 tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 block of Philadelphia cream cheese (not lite)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1  1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 15 x 10 inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.

Trim a very thin slice off the bottom of each peach half (so they will stand straight).  Dip each half in the butter to coat and sprinkle the cut sides with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla untill well mixed and light and fluffy.  Spoon this into each peach half centre. Sprinkle pecans on top.

Bake uncovered until lightly browned and softened. (about 25-30 minutes) Serve warm.

This is truly yummy-yummy!
