Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Peach Cobbler

Hey everyone! Peach season is here!!! Wooooo Hooooo!!!!! Went to a peach farm today and bought a peck. They're small but oh so yummy!!! So what to do with all those peaches??? I found a recipe for Peach Cobbler and 'tweaked' it a bit. First I'll give you the recipe with the little tweaks......then I'll make a suggestion or two.

PEACH COBBLER
Makes 6 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

Peach Filling:
2/3 cup Splenda Granulated
1 TBSP cornstarch
1/4 cup water
4 cups fresh peeled and sliced peaches

In a saucepan, combine Splenda and cornstarch. Add water and whisk until smooth. Stir in peaches and cook until thickened and bubbly. Keep hot.

Topping:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Splenda Granulated
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
3 TBSP light butter
1/4 cup egg substitute
3 TBSP fat-free milk

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Cut in light butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg substitute and FF milk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just to moisten.

Transfer filling to an 8x8x2-inch baking dish. Drop topping into 6 mounds atop hot filling. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes.

MY SPIN: Put some cinnamon in the peach filling also! It has lots of flavor and no PointsPlus™. Put more than 1/2 tsp cinnamon in the topping! In my book, there's never enough cinnamon! I would drop the topping on the hot filling in smaller and more mounds. When I tried this, I thought the filling came out a bit watery.....until I 'broke up' the topping and it absorbed some of the juice.

Serve with Fat Free Cool Whip -- 2 TBSP won't add PointsPlus™. Or serve with ice cream -- but don't forget to figure out the added PointsPlus™! Or just eat it alone!!!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
