Cheesecake-Stuffed Peaches

I am SOOOO glad I looked through my Better Homes and Gardens magazine last night.  This dessert was AMAZING!
(sorry there are no pictures of their heavenly goodness...)

6 peaches, halved and pitted
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 tbs sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.  Trim a thin slice from the round side of each peach half so the halves will stand flat.  Dip peach halves in melted butter to coat.  Arrange peaches, cut sides up, baking pan lined with parchment paper.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

In medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with a mixer on medium speed until smooth.  Add sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla.  Beat until combined.  Spoon mixture into peach centers.

Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes or until lightly browned and softened.  Serve warm.

Borrowed From a Facebook Post

I promise I will update my blog with what's been going on in my life soon, but until then, I want to share my friend Johnna's most recent Facebook post:

Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Mary was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old, and Lazarus was dead.  Now, what's YOUR excuse?  Can God use you?

Wow.  How powerful is that?!  Of course God can use you, but will you let Him?  I'm ready God...use me.
