Snack-urday 115

In my search for yummy snacks, main meals, and desserts, I came across this peach dessert recipe from the Food Network.

Try it, you might like it!


2 pounds frozen peaches, thawed
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cold and cut in 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 cup sugar
1 (16.3-ounce) can biscuits (recommended: Pillsbury Grands! Southern Style Biscuits)
2 tablespoons butter or cooking spray


~~Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

~~In a medium bowl, combined thawed peaches, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, vanilla extract and cornstarch, mix well to coat all of the peaches. Pour mixture into a cast iron skillet that has been coated in nonstick spray. Randomly place tablespoon size dollops of cream cheese on top of the peaches.

~~In a small bowl, combine the sugar and the remaining cinnamon. Remove biscuits from the can and separate. Dredge each biscuit in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and set aside.

~~Arrange biscuits over peaches. Place skillet in oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuits are brown and filling is bubbly. Remove from oven; cool slightly.

Our wonderfully seasoned black cast-iron skillet came from the Fowlerville Hardware store. Its uses are limitless, from frying up Friday night taco shells to cooking salmon to making dessert -- it has seen it all.
