Cream Cheese Peach Pie

I have been on a pie kick lately.  As much as I love chocolate cream pie, vanilla wafer pudding pie, and mousse pie, I have been making pies that are a little "healthier."  Well, as healthy as a pie can be, I guess!  You know, less sugar and fresh fruit:)  We got fresh peaches from the store this morning and peach pie sounded so good, so I made some.

You will need:
1 ready made graham cracker pie crust
8 oz light cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar + 1 1/2 tsp
1 tsp vanilla
3 medium sized peaches
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
*if you want soft peaches in your
pie, use canned peaches instead of fresh*

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
For the base, mix the cream cheese, egg, 1/3 cup sugar, and vanilla.  Once mixed well, pour into the pie crust.

Slice the peaches off the pit, then cut the slices into bite sized pieces.  You can peel the skin off if you want to.  I don't, though.

Put the peaches on the cream cheese mixture in the pie crust and kind of press down so that most of the peaches kind of sink into the mixture...leaving some exposed on top.  Mix the 1 1/2 tsp sugar and the cinnamon together and then sprinkle over the peaches.

Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.  When ready, remove from the oven and place in the refrigerator to chill.  Once chilled (about 3 hours) cut and serve!  It's good with fresh strawberries!
