Bake for roughly 30 minutes at 350, just until the cheesecake starts to lightly brown and puff up a little. I serve these at breakfast but they would be good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert.
Ingredients
  • 6 peaches, halved and pitted, don’t peel (It is really important to get freestone peaches, so they separate easily.)
  • ¼ C butter, melted
  • 3 Tbsp cinnamon-sugar mixture
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ C sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ C sliced almonds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Dredge peaches through melted butter and set cut side up in a 9X13-baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Beat together cream cheese, ¼ C sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla. I use a mini food processor. Dollop filling in the center of each peach, filling the hole.
  5. Sprinkle almonds on top.
  6. Bake until the cheesecake starts to brown, around 30 minutes.

There always seems to be enough goop to coat everything; you just have to really mix it in the pot for a few minutes.
Ingredients
  • ½ c. brown sugar, packed
  • ½ c. dark corn syrup
  • ¼ c. butter
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 6 c. Cheerios cereal
  • 1 c. peanuts
  • ½ c. slivered almonds
  • (The original recipe is above. I usually use
  • 1 cup of peanuts, 1 cup of silvered almonds and 1 cup of cashews. You could use pecans if you have a peanut allergy.
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Brush jelly roll pan, 15½ x 10½ x 1 inch with butter or spray with oil cooking spray.
  3. Melt butter then add brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in 3 quart, or bigger, saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  4. When it’s bubbling remove from heat. Stir in nuts, then add cereal and stir until well coated.
  5. Spread mixture in the jelly roll pan.
  6. Bake 15 minutes.
  7. Cool 5 to10 minutes; then loosen mixture with metal spatula and break into chunks into a plastic container with a lid. Don’t wait too long or you are busting it apart.
  8. Store in the covered container.
  9. I usually freeze it and it lasts for months.
  10. Just scoop out how much you need and leave the rest in the freezer.
  11. About 8-10 cups of snack.
