Peach Cheesecake

Doesn't that look good? Last week, my sister, who is also an amazing baker and cook, asked me to test her new peach cheesecake recipe. Let me tell you, it is awesome! It was a nice change of pace from regular cake. And a wonderful way to use some of those tasty peaches that are perfect this time of year!

I wanted to give you a little look at what I've been doing since I haven't posted any cakes lately. But, unfortunately, I can't share it with you because Amy isn't finished with it yet and is going to enter it in a contest. Wish her luck!

In the meantime, here is an idea I can share with you for a tasty and easy little peach snack. Take a peach (or two) and peel and slice it. Put it in a small microwave-safe container. In a separate small container, mix together a pinch of cinnamon, a teaspoon to a tablespoon of sugar, and some quick oats. Mix this with the peaches and microwave for a minute on high. Then you have a quick little serving of peach cobbler! Top with whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy! You can do this with apples, too. And play around with it - try adding a little vanilla or a touch of cream.

I also have some tasty treats coming up. Today, I'm baking a triple berry pie. This is new to me, so I hope it turns out! If it does, I will share my recipe and method. I also have two guest posts from my sister - two absolutely wonderful brownie recipes that you will all just swoon for. Trust me on that!

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Your cheesecake looks really nice! Yumm!

  2. Thanks! Do you like the swirl I made with the peaches on top? :)

  3. Yes. : ) And I love fruit crisp! Hmmm, I wonder how it would be with raspberries, since that's what I have on hand at the moment. No butter in yours, sounds esp. healthy!

  4. I think it would be wonderful with raspberries. I was going to suggest adding a bit of melted butter to moisten the oatmeal a little. It might be better that way, but the fruit juices may be enough on their own and, as you said, healthier. Try it both ways and let me know what you think!
