Peach Cobbler Bars

 

Peach Cobbler is my absolute favorite summer dessert. Usually I make this Easy Peach Cobbler or Oatmeal Cookie Peach Cobbler. But I thought I might try it in a new form- Peach Cobbler Bars.

Peach Cobbler Bars made with fresh summer peaches.

We live right in the middle of South Carolina peach country and there’s a farm stand with fresh peaches only a short walk from my house. I try to take advantage of them and use them for everything from pancakes to cocktails to salsa.

While I am still partial to a warm bowl of peach cobbler, these bars are perfect for when you need a quick and easy cleanup. No spoons or bowls required.

Peach Cobbler Bars have a buttery flavor with a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger plus a little almond extract.

This recipe makes a 9×13-inch pan full of bars so it is perfect for picnics and potlucks. We ate them plain, but I’m sure they’d be even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I use fresh peaches but you could use frozen. Make sure to use very ripe peaches to get plenty of sweetness.

I drizzled a simple glaze on top for a little extra sweetness, but it’s really not necessary. Especially if you serve them with ice cream or whipped cream.

  1. What exactly is the purpose of lining with foil? Other than it ripping when you try to get stuff out of the pan? Next time will definitely will use parchment or nothing at all.
