Creamy Baked Peaches


Chef’s Notes: Peach cobbler with cream is one of my favorite desserts, and peach season always gets me thinking about it. But, I wondered, is there a way to enjoy those flavors, without all the pastry and sugar? Yes, there is, I discovered when I created this yummy recipe!

*All cottage cheeses are not created equal. Some are moist, some dry, some salty, some sweet. I used Michigan Brand cottage cheese, which is quite dry and slightly sweet. I don’t know how this recipe would work with a cottage cheese of a different consistency and/or flavor. Ricotta could be substituted.

As an alternative, slice or dice the peaches rather than leaving whole, and substitute real maple syrup for the honey. Bake, and then use as a topping for a whole wheat waffle.
