Cheesecake-Stuffed Peaches

I really like to cook and bake and my mom has been teaching me a lot of new recipes. Here is one we tried the other night and it was very good. I thought I'd share with my friends here!

Cheesecake-Stuffed Baked Peaches:
We made them with fresh peaches! I imagine you could used canned peaches in the off season.

6 peaches, washed, halved and pitted
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 Tbsp. cinnamon-sugar
1/2 of an 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar (we used a little less)
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15x10x1 inch baking pan with parchment paper, set aside. Trim a very thin slice from the round side of each peach half so the halves will sit steady on pan. Dip each peach half in melted butter to coat top. Arrange them on prepared pan. Sprinkle tops of peaches with cinnamon-sugar; set aside. (You can purchase a cinnamon-sugar mixture or combine 3 Tbsp. sugar with 1 tsp. ground cinnamon.)

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with a mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla. Beat until combined. Spoon cream cheese mixture into peach centers. Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until lightly browned and softened. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled. We liked ours warm!
Makes 6 servings (2 peach halves per serving.)
