Let’s get peachy!

Peaches are one of my favorite summer fruits.  Actually, I don’t think I can play favorites. There are so many glorious gems to chose from this time of year… mango, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, pineapples – I love them all!  I’m a total fruit-aholic and my latest recipes definitely reflect that.

Juicy peaches are in their prime right about now and I have been eating them like crazy.

These fruity/creamy bars are nothing short of amazing.  Four layers are involved: buttery, brown sugar oat crust, creamy & juicy peach filling, pecan/cinnamon crumble, and an easy vanilla glaze to finish it all off.  The peach filling leaves each bite ultra moist and the crumble on top maintains a slight crunch.  These bars are a texture lover’s dream!

The peachy filling is made from peaches, egg, flour, and sugar.  The egg and flour create a thick creamy sauce to envelope the diced peaches inside.  I adore the peach filling, but the crust and crumble are to die for!  They are both made from the same dough, which makes things nice and easy. I try to dirty as little bowls as possible when I can. ;)

The crust/crumble is made from 5 easy ingredients. Probably things you have in your kitchen right now! Oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter.  You’re going to cut the cold butter into the other ingredients. I recommend using a pastry cutter. It makes things so much easier.  I bought mine for less than $10. It is worth its weight in gold! Especially if you have plans to make my Salted Caramel Apple Pie.

Cut the cold butter in until it is crumbly. Pea-sized, coarse crumbs is what you’re aiming for.  Reserve 3/4 cup of the oat mixture for the topping, to which you’ll add pecans.  Don’t worry, they’re optional if you’re not crazy about pecans like I am.  The rest of the oat mixture will be pressed into your pan for the crust.

This is what the coarse crumbs of the oat mixture will look like:

Brown Sugar/Oat Crumble for Peaches 'n Cream Bars

Prebake the crust slightly, then pour the creamy peach filling over the crust.  What you will LOVE most about these bars is that the juicy filling seeps into the crust as it bakes, making the bars unbelievably moist.  The tender, brown sugary crust will melt in your mouth.

The bars only take about 30 minutes in the oven.  Your kitchen will smell like a cross between cinnamon rolls and peach pie.  Two of my favorite things in one!  Allow the bars to cool before cutting and drizzling with the vanilla glaze.  The glaze is made from 3 simple ingredients: heavy cream (or milk), powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.

Drizzle the glaze on top and prepare to be amazed. ;)

Peaches 'n Cream Bars

Take advantage of summer's fresh peaches with these easy bars. A four layered bar with a brown sugar/oat crust, topped with a creamy peach filling, pecan streusel, and finished off with luscious vanilla glaze.

Yield: 12 large bars

Ingredients:

Crust & Topping

  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (42g) old fashioned rolled oats (or quick oats)
  • 1/3 cup (67g) dark brown sugar (or light)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 10 Tablespoons (150g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup (70g) chopped pecans, optional

Peach Filling

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon (8g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium peaches, peeled and chopped (about 1.5 cups)

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1/2 cup (60g) confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) heavy cream (or milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line 8x8 baking pan with aluminum foil with enough overhang on the sides for easy removal. Spray foil with nonstick spray.

Make the crust/topping: In a large bowl, whisk the flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon together until combined. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry blender or two forks until it reaches coarse, pea-sized crumbs. See photo above. Remove 3/4 cup of the mixture, put in a small bowl and mix with pecans. This will be set aside for the topping.

Evenly press the remaining oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes as you prepare the filling.

Make the filling: Whisk the egg and sugar together until smooth and creamy. Add the flour and salt. Whisk until combined. Fold in the peaches. Remove crust from the oven after 15 minutes and pour the filling over hot crust. Sprinkle with reserved oat/pecan mixture. Bake for 30-32 minutes or until golden brown on top. Allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Transfer to the refrigerator and allow to chill for 2 hours before cutting into squares.

Make the vanilla glaze: Using a fork or spoon, whisk/stir the confectioners' sugar, cream, and vanilla extract together until smooth. Drizzle over each square.  Store bars tightly covered in the refrigerator.  Bars stay fresh for up to 4 days.

*Recipe may easily be doubled to fit in a 9x13 pan, baking time will increase to 35 minutes.

    Question…we have some rosy apricots in the house begging to be used …would these work to sub for the peaches…or would I need more liquid to make up for the juiciness of the peaches?

    I love this, Sally! I love crumbly topping, and the peaches, mmmm, so good! Peaches and oats are made for each other, really! I love that you made the topping and the crust from the same dough – big timesaver.

    I have a recipe for Caramel PB & J Bars that uses a drizzle of caramel sauce and PB with Peach Jelly and it uses the same crust/topping mixture like you did. Those bars are some of Scott’s faves that I’ve ever made – two cookbooks later :) And he’s not even a peach fan.

    And I think it’s hilarious that you compared the smell of the kitchen to a cross between peach pie and cinnamon rolls… I actually made “Peach Pie Cinnamon Rolls” earlier this month! Great minds must think alike. ;)

I doubled it and put it in the 9 by 13 inch pan and they were perfect. I used closer to 3 1/2 cups of peaches- it was not too much for the filling. Thanks for another wonderful recipe!

    Peaches are all I eat lately! Instead of eating them raw, I defiantly need to put them in these bars. That vanilla glaze looks haunting.

    These look delish! If doubling it and using a 9×13 pan, should I still pre-bake the crust just for the 15 minutes and then bake the filling in for the 35? Planning on making these for a party next week!

    Thank you!

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on August 2nd, 2013 at 6:02 pm

      Hi Rosie! Yes, still prebake the crust for 15 minutes. I believe the bars would only take 35 minutes – maybe 40, Just keep your eye on them and remove them when they begin to brown. Enjoy!

    Hi Sally! I am a teacher and I have spent my summer break baking as many things from your blog as possible! In the past few months I have made your: peaches and cream bars, death by chocolate peanut butter chips cookies, peanut butter cup oatmeal cookies, banana bread, blueberry apple pie bars, dark chocolate and raspberry muffins and your sky high blueberry muffins! I also made (and commented on) your red velvet swirl brownies. I’m sure I’ve made more but forgotten. What I’m trying to say is that I’m obsessed with your blog- it must have something to do with the Philly connection :) Your recipes are the best. Hope you’re having a great vacation!

    Sally, this looks amazing (as always). Ever since I discovered your blog, I have made numerous recipes and every single one has been a hit. That coming from someone who is (was) not too much into sweets. I just have one problem, my hubby and son have a very high level of cholesterol and I had been avoiding baking with butter (I, on the other hand, am a huge butter fan). Is there anything I could use instead of butter that is more cholesterol friendly or could I maybe use a little less?

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on August 1st, 2014 at 3:54 pm

      Hey Tatiana! Perhaps some cold coconut oil? I’m really not sure. This isn’t really the best recipe for subbing butter.

    I just put yet another batch of these bars in the oven and thought I’d thank you for posting the recipe. I’ve made several of your desserts and liked them all, but these peach bars are a serious contender for my favorite treat of all time. This has become one of my go-to recipes for feeding summer guests, and the bars always get an enthusiastic reception (I’ve been asked for the link to the recipe more than once). You are a baking genius.

      The egg and flour create a cream-like consistency with the juicy peaches.

        Thanks, Sally. I made these and they are delicious! Used half white whole wheat flour and half regular flour. Also used only 1/3 C sugar in the filling. Would it make a creamer filling if I used the 1/2 C sugar called for in the recipe? Also, thinking about trying another batch using brown sugar instead of white. Would that make a difference in the creaminess?

    Hi Sally!

    Thank you for sharing this post. I’ve made it 3 times over the summer and it’s been such a great hit with my friends and family! I’ve substituted the pecans with macadamias which add to the already creamy texture and also used melted white chocolate instead of a vanilla glaze (’cause I’m lazy like that ;) ).

    Just a question – is it alright if I substitute the peaches with mangoes? Peaches are getting crazy expensive in Australia right now!

    Thanks!
