Peaches & Cream Cheesecake

Our family is having a Family Reunion tomorrow. So in my "down time" this week, I've been working on some projects. The perfect gifts, for some of the elder members of the family. And a few good recipes. Since we were all asked, to bring our favorite dishes. And well, I'm a dessert gal. So I've been trying out some new and yummy desserts. This one in particular, just fit the bill. On so many sides! Thank goodness for Gooseberry Patch and their free Recipe of the Week!

Peaches & Cream Cheesecake

3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. milk
1 egg
1 t. baking powder
3.4-oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
3 T. butter
15-oz. can sliced peaches, juice reserved
8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. plus 1 T. sugar, divided
1 t. cinnamon

Blend together flour, salt, milk, egg, baking powder, pudding mix and butter; beat for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 9" round pan; arrange peaches on top. In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, 3 tablespoons of reserved juice and 1/2 cup sugar; beat for 2 minutes. Spoon over peaches. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Serves

Yes, I made 4 of these, on Thursday. Because my friends all go to mass on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Afterward, we head to someone's house, and have dinner. These beauties were gone in minutes! They were that good. And now, I'm getting ready to make 6 for tomorrow. Happy Saturday! ♥
