Peach Crumb Bars

Dan

It's been sooooo great having endless access to fresh yummy Daddy-O peaches. I missed those while living overseas. Like really missed them!! The peaches were good there, but there is nothing like a good ol' basket of peaches that my daddy picked for me. Really, there is not! Too bad he's not here to peel them for me too! Growing up one of my favorite things is that dad would always peel my peaches and apples for me - I know, I know, I'm spoiled!! 

This season, I've been eating the peaches up and finding new recipes like peach cookies and my latest recipe - the amazing Peach Crumb Bar. It was like peach cobbler on the go....  Be prepared! It's yummy and easy too!

 

Ingredients:  

Filling 

  • 5 cups diced peeled peaches
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Dough

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon and sugar-for sprinkling on top of the bars

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.

2. For the peach filling- place the diced peaches in a large bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix gently. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, cornstarch, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over the peaches and carefully combine. Set aside.

3. For the dough-in a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until butter is mixed in, but you still have small chunks of butter. Mix the vanilla and egg together. Add into the flour and butter mixture and combine. The dough will be crumbly- like very crumbly!! Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan.

4. Spread the peach mixture evenly over the bottom crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the peach layer. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

5. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve. It's even better warm with a scoop of icecream!!! (It's easier to cut into bars if it's completly cool. I waited until the next day and it was perfect!!) 

Yields 24 Bars
