Peach Crumb Bars

To honor summer — and its bounty — one last time, I think you should hightail it over to your favorite farmers’ market or produce stand and make these decadent, buttery, can’t-have-just one peach crumb bars.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 3/4 Cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 Teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, cold, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 peaches, pitted and thinly sliced

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Butter a 9-by-13-inch pan, or spray it with a nonstick spray. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, baking powder, flour, salt, and spices with a whisk. Using a pastry blender or your hands, blend the butter and egg into the flour mixture. Pat about 2/3 of the crumbs into the bottom of the prepared pan, pressing firmly.

Place the peach slices over crumb base in a single layer. Spread remaining crumbs over the peaches until coated evenly.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until top is slightly brown and you can see a little color around the edges. Cool completely in pan before cutting into squares.
 

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
