I practically live on Pinterest, so things like a Skinny Peach Pastry Sandwich are possible. Each day, I am wildly at work, clicking away. Mostly, I pin desserts (surprise, surprise!) And for some reason, whenever I see a pin with peaches, I pin it. It’s not that I am the world’s biggest peach fan, it’s just that they look so darn delicious all the time! In fact, I’m not even sure I like peaches. I definitely don’t like them straight off the branch, but even in some dishes . . . not a huge fan. Yet, this recipe was seriously delicious! Warm, doughy bread. Melted, creamy cheese. Browned, sugary peaches. What do y’all think?So what’s awesome about my Skinny Peach Pastry Sandwich is that you can use really, really cool kitchen equipment to whip it up. Check out these awesome tools for making homemade bread/crust:
Favorites? I am an addict for marble cheese boards, and one with a cheese slicer? All the better. I also have to have that bread maker. Homemade bread, warm – think those soft, warm doughy rolls that come out fresh at Italian restaurants. And finally, I wholly welcome that Raclette Cheese.
- 1/2 cup sliced peaches (30 calories)
- 1 teaspoon Truvia Baking Blend, Brown Sugar (10 calories)
- 1 teaspoon I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, "Lite" (13 calories)
- 1/4 cup fat-free shredded Mozzarella (40 calories)
- 1/3 cup pastry flour (110 calories - if using whole wheat pastry flour, the cottage cheese may need to be doubled)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (2 calories)
- 2 tablespoons fat-free cottage cheese (22.5 calories)
- 1 tablespoon Truvia
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce (7 calories)
- 2 tablespoons liquid eggbeaters or egg-whites (17 calories)
- Preheat oven to 375.
- While oven is heating up, measure out peaches, brown sugar and butter. Add all ingredients into a non-stick pan on medium-heat and warm until butter and sugar have melted together, and your peaches are slightly browned on the edges.
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cottage cheese, Truvia and egg.
- Using hands, mold dough into a ball or a rectangle (whatever shape you desire your pastry to be, really) and pop into the oven for about 12 - 15 minutes, or until the top is browned and the dough is stiff to the touch.
- Once your dough is cooked to your liking, remove dough and cut the top off carefully. Because your cottage cheese likely hasn't melted completely, this step may be slightly difficult. Fill with cheese and browned peaches and pop back into the oven for about 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted completely. This should be enough time to melt the cottage cheese
