Baked Sweet Peaches

For a long time in my life, I didn’t care for many fruits.  But peaches were always something I adored.  They’re so delectably juicy and such a sweet natural treat.  It’s as if God decided to give us glorious hanging candy from trees wrapped in the soft skin of whatever Adam named a peach.  I love them plain.  Oh, they’re so good.  But I also love them when they’re combined with other delicious ingredients.  Nancy Frady’s Peach Cobbler is my faaaaaaaaavorite.  But, now that I’m back on Weight Watchers, trying to stretch my points, I need treats that won’t suck up quite so much of my daily allotment.  These baked sweet peaches are equal parts delightful and scrumptious.  When you’re needing a healthier treat for your taste buds, this one should be welcomed whole heartedly.  (In case you’re wondering- they are 5 Weight Watchers Points Plus per whole peach.)
