ROASTED PEACH BUTTER

003
If you’re looking for a way to use up peaches, here’s an easy recipe, almost effortless actually.  You can roast the peaches with a few ingredients till the liquid is just about evaporated, then puree it for a delicious peach butter that can be used in so many ways.  Try topping a slice of plain cheesecake with this wonderful peach goodness, as the photo above shows. 
How about a spoonful or two on your morning oatmeal, as in the following photo.

You could also make these delicious roasted peach butter spice cupcakes

Or you can spread some on a bagel, slice of toast or waffle. 
Then again, you could simply eat the peach butter off a spoon. So-o-o good.

I'll have to buy peaches for this yummy peach butter; we can't seem to keep fresh peaches very long. They're just too good!
This really sounds amazing Judy-thanks!
