Fresh Peach Crumb Bars

A fresh peach filling sandwiched between buttery and crumbly dough–part pie and part cobbler.

I made these fresh peach crumb bars recently from a recipe I found on Celebrating Sweets and they turned out so delicious! They were fun and simple to make, made my entire house smell amazing, and tasted wonderful. My kids raved about them and so did my husband. I think these peach crumb bars are the perfect summer treat.

How to Make Fresh Peach Crumb Bars

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking dish with a bit of parchment paper, if desired. Lightly spray the baking dish and parchment with cooking spray.

To make the crumb bars, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter, until the butter mixture resembles coarse sand. Add the beaten egg and mix until the dough starts to hold together, but is still crumbly.

Gently press a little more than half of the dough firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan to make a crust.

Combine the peaches, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, vanilla, and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Mix until well combined. Pour on top of the crust.

Using your hands, press together handfuls of the remaining crumb topping to create clumps. Scatter the clumps over the top of the peach layer leaving some peaches showing through.

Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool completely then chill before cutting and icing.

To make the icing, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk together until creamy and smooth. Drizzle on top of the bars right before serving.

  1. These bars sound yummy! Peaches have always been my favorite fruit, & I always wait patiently for peach season to arrive. We just bought some beautiful peaches from the farmer’s stand in town, so we’ll be enjoying these bars several times before the season is over. Thanks.
