Stir together cream cheese and the reserved 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) brown sugar. When well blended, fold in 1/4 cup (60 mL) peaches. Set aside.

Add milk, oil, vanilla and egg to dry ingredients, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Lightly stir in remaining peaches and walnuts. Spoon 3/4 of the batter into prepared muffin tins. Place a teaspoonful of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each then spoon remaining batter over the top.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
