Peach Pie Crumble Bars – Just delicious
This post is a paid partnership with BC Tree Fruits. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting my blog and helping me to collaborate with organizations that I love.
In the summer heat is peach season and this year I celebrate with these peach cake sprinkles. They have a buttery, shortbread-like base; a layer of sweet, juicy peaches; and a delicious oatmeal crumble topping. Then I just added a dash of sweet vanilla icing.
These peach bars combine the 2 best peach recipes – peach pie and peach crisp – to make a delicious, simple peach recipe.
The key to any recipe with fresh fruit is choosing the best products. You want peaches that are sweet, soft, aromatic and especially juicy. The kind you have to eat over the sink because so much juice flows over your elbows. That's why I always choose BC Tree Fruits peaches.
They are grown in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and in the season from the end of July to the first week of September. When shopping, look for the BC Tree Fruits sticker so you know your peaches are of the highest quality.
Peach cake crumble bar recipe
These peach pie bars are so easy to prepare and so perfect to enjoy fresh peaches. The bars have 3 delicious layers – but the sweet, fragrant BC peaches are the star of the show.
The base is a simple shortbread recipe of flour, icing sugar, some salt and melted butter. It is pressed into the bottom of the pan and baked for about 15 minutes before the other layers lie on top.
The middle layer are our juicy peaches. It's basically a peach pie filling made with fresh peaches from BC, cornstarch, sugar and some lemon juice.
Then last but not least – the oatmeal crumble comes on it. It's a crunchy oatmeal crumble with just a hint of cinnamon. Then the whole thing is baked in the oven and once it has cooled, it is time to serve.
These peach cake crumble bars taste great with a dash of sweet vanilla icing or a scoop of ice cream. I also like it cold right out of the fridge.
They are buttery, full-bodied and above all filled with the juiciest peaches from Okanagan. So go to the grocery store, look for the BC Tree Fruits sticker for the most delicious peaches and enjoy these peach cake crumble bars.
