Peach Crumb Bars

Peach Crumb Bars - a crumbly, soft and delicious bar topped with peaches and batter - perfect for the peach lover in the family!

Good morning all! If you haven’t figured it out by now, the summer 120 degree weather here in AZ does not stop this family from baking. You know you have a sick addiction when you’re willing to let your A/C bill increase just so you can have a delicious treat. It’s easier for me, since most of our Tried and True recipes are created, cooked and baked at my mom’s house (sorry for the high electric bill Mom!) I don’t think she minds too much, because she knows how much joy this kind of stuff brings to our existence. 🙂

Today’s recipe especially made the men in our family happy. They’re suckers for some peach-y goodness! If you love peach pie, you will love these Peach Crumb Bars. They’re much easier to eat than pie and, in my opinion, easier to make too! We decided to used canned peaches instead of fresh. This way you can make all year long, instead of waiting for fresh peaches. Either way, if you’re a peach person, these bars are for you.

Here’s the recipe…

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter chilled and cut into chunks

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.

  2. Combine flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter to flour mixture and toss. Using a fork or pastry cutter, blend in the butter to create a crumbly texture. Whisk the egg slightly, and stir it into the mixture. Press half of the dough into a greased 9x13 baking pan.

    1. I haven’t made it with fresh peaches, but I’m guessing a few. It wouldn’t hurt it there was more or less, it just depends on how peach-y you’d like it. I hope that helps and hope you like it!

  1. I made this for a picnic and it turned out GREAT! I used canned peaches, but next time I will use fresh peaches. I was afraid of the crust cause I don’t usually do that, but I did and it turned out fabulous. I evem printed the recipe off to put with the dish so people can make it themselves and even see what is in it in case of food allergies.

  2. Made these for a family get together over the weekend and everyone loved them!! For my personal preference I think next time i will keep a little bit of the juice from the canned peaches instead of draining all of it to make it a little more moist. But even just doing the recipe as is my family ate it all, wanted more and liked it just how it was!

  3. Do you think this would be good with a cream chesse pOwdered sugar drizzle Once its cooked and cooLed?
