1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen peeled sliced peaches, thawed
1 large egg

1 1/2 cups reduced-fat biscuit baking mix
2 cups (8-ounces) Sargento Light Mild Cheddar Shredded Cheese - divided use
- In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups water, dried fruit, brown sugar, lemon juice and nutmeg; heat to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in peaches; keep warm.
- Beat egg in a bowl. Stir in milk. Add baking mix, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in 1 3/4 cups cheese.
- Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium-high heat until a drop of water on the griddle sizzles. Spray griddle with nonstick cooking spray.
- For each pancake, drop 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook for 2 minutes or until tops are bubbly and edges look cooked. Turn; continue to cook for 1 minute or until bottom is golden brown. Transfer to warm plates; top with fruit sauce. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
