Peaches and Cream Crumble Bars
By Lizzie on August 6, 2020
Hello my friends. I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. This happens to be my first blog post since losing my Louie, and I felt it was time to get back to doing what I truly love and what brings me so much joy….BAKING 🙂
Peaches this season are some of the best I have ever tasted. When I was creating this recipe and cutting peaches, I felt as if I was eating more than I was adding to the batter. Peaches are one of my favorite fruits, and when they are in season, there is no better fruit in my opinion.
I decided to create a yummy bar with peaches because you can cut whatever size piece you wish, and freeze the rest to pull out every time you want a delicious dessert!
These Peaches and Cream Crumble Bars will make you fall in love with peaches, if you haven’t already 🙂 I had so much fun creating this recipe, and I ended up eating wayyyyy too much of the bars after they cooled off. They are simply irresistible!!!
I hope you love these as much as I loved making them!!
LizzieJust some of the wonderful ingredients that go into this recipe!
The crumble is sooo yummy!!
Look at these gorgeous peaches!! They are my favorite summer fruit!!
They were so sweet, they didn’t even need much sugar!
Sour cream and cinnamon in the batter add such a wonderful flavor!
My kitchen smelled heavenly while these bars were baking!!
Make the glaze while the bars are cooling.
Now just go to town with your glaze 🙂
I am not ashamed to admit I ate two pieces 🙂
How delicious do these look?
Here’s the second piece right before I devoured it 😉
So pretty, they deserve a close up 🙂
What a treat these are!!
Now hurry up and go get some peaches…let them ripen, and make these fabulous bars today 🙂

Now, fold in your peaches being careful not to break them apart.
Pour the mixture carefully over the cooled crust.
Sprinkle the remaining 2 and 1/2 cups crumble all over the top.
Bake for about 50 minutes, or until the top is lightly golden brown and set.
Let the bars cool for about an hour on top of the stove before you drizzle on the glaze.
Whisk together the glaze ingredients until smooth and creamy.
Drizzle over the completely cooled bars.
Cut into any size square you wish 🙂

I’m so happy to see you baking again, Lizzie. I know how hard it was for you to lose your sweet baby Louie. I have felt the same pain recently and it’s one of the hardest things in life to go through. You are so brave. This recipe looks amazing and I love any desert with peaches in it. I’m going to make it this weekend. Lots of love from California. xoxo Kate
Hi Kate. Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful words. I am so very sorry for the pain you are experiencing too. It is just so hard. Sending you lots of love and peace..xo
I made these Peaches and Cream bars today, and I used less sugar in the sour cream batter. I used 1 1/2 cups because the peaches are really sweet. The bars are good! Thanks for posting recipe. I had some peaches I needed to use up!
Hey Jane! That sounds like a great idea. I was going to add that in the comment section of the recipe, but you are super smart to know that already 🙂 xo
