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!!!

Peachy Cream Cheese

Guess this will be Phase 3 of the basket of peaches.....and I think the final phase. The rest of the peaches will be sliced/chopped and frozen for future use (probably in pancakes).  I had a piece of this last night after it cooled a bit and it was good. I had a piece for breakfast (sometimes it's fun being an adult!) and it was even better!  A yummy & different way to use peaches!

Using Neufchatel Cream Cheese: 9 Servings = 4 PointsPlus™
                                                                         6 Servings = 5 PointsPlus™
Using Fat Free Cream Cheese: 9 Servings = 2 PointsPlus™
                                                                        6 Servings = 4 PointsPlus™

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 (4 serving) package vanilla pudding mix (NOT instant)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 cup fat-free milk
3 TBSP light butter, melted
2 cups pitted, peeled, sliced peaches
1/4 cup peach juice
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
1 TBSP Splenda granulated
1/2 TBSP cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Spray an 8x8x2 baking dish.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, pudding mix and baking powder together. Set aside.

In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the egg substitute, milk and melted butter; combine this with the flour mixture. Pour batter into pan. Arrange sliced peaches onto batter.

In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, 1/2 cup Splenda granulated and peach juice. Carefully spread on the peaches. Sprinkle with 1 TBSP Splenda granulated and cinnamon.

Bake for 45 minutes. Cool on rack and then refrigerate.

MY SPIN: I used the Neufchatel Cream Cheese in this for the texture and flavor. This recipe originally called for canned peaches but I used fresh peaches and 'squeezed' some of the not-so-pretty ones to get the juice. And, of course, I didn't measure the cinnamon.....I just sprinkled some on top.

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. ***

Loving Life(time)!
