Jan's Tips: 

Remember that when adding the sweetener to the peaches, that you are really sweetening the entire dessert, so you can adjust the amount of the sweetener to suit your own taste.

Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon or ground ginger on top, to give it just a slight push over the top!
 This recipe can be made up to 6 hours in advance, just save the cookies till right before serving!
