Peachy Cheesecake Squares
2 cups sliced ripe peaches
2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter - cold, sliced
1 pkg. ( 8 ounce) cream cheese - softened
1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Peel and core the peaches, slice or chop and toss with cinnamon sugar.
In a large bowl, combine flour and powdered sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly and rather dry. Remove 2 cups of this mixture for the topping. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of an ungreased, 9x13" pan. Bake the crust for 15 minutes.
While the crust is baking, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in the condensed milk until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla, mix well.
After the crust has baked for 15 minutes, remove from oven and carefully smooth the peaches over the crust in an even layer. Drizzle with any peach juice in the bowl. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the peaches. Sprinkle the reserved crust mixture over the top and bake for 30-35 minutes until bubbly and starting to brown on the top.
Serve warm with a little vanilla ice cream. Store in refrigerator.
