Peaches and Cream Bars | www.tasteandtellblog.com

If there is one food that I can’t wait to come in season here in Utah, it’s peach season. I LOVE Utah peaches. Now, I’ve never been to Georgia before, and I know that they are known for their peaches, but I’m guessing that a Utah peach would rival a Georgia peach! And now that August has hit, it is finally peach season here. I’ve been watching as people all over the country have been enjoying peaches, and I’ll admit I get quite jealous. But now I can start cooking up all of these peach ideas I have in my head!

And because I love Utah peaches so much, and because I do have a ton of ideas, I decided that this week is going to be peach week! I have 6 great peach recipes for you to enjoy! (Plus a bonus non-peach recipe this afternoon, along with a giveaway!!) I’m looking forward to sharing lots of great peach ideas with you – both sweet and savory. Just because peaches are sweet doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate them into your dinner!

Up first is the first recipe that popped into my head when I thought of peaches. It all started with peaches and cream, which I absolutely love. And then I remembered a recipe that I made way back in 2008 for Blackberry Pie Bars. Joy the Baker also made this recipe famous with her Berry Cobbler Pie Bars. And I couldn’t help but think of how great these bars would be with peaches.

I was right.  These bars were delicious.  The buttery, shortbread crust goes perfectly with the creamy peach filling.  And we all know how much I love a crumb topping!! Now I can only imagine what other fruit this recipe would be great with!

Peaches and Cream Bars
adapted from the Pastry Queen

makes 20 bars

Crust and Topping
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled

Filling
4 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup all purpose flour
pinch of salt
2 pounds peaches, pitted and sliced thin

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray; set aside.

In the bowl of a mixer, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Mix with the paddle attachment until combined. Cut the butter into small pieces and add in a few at a time. Mix until the butter is evenly combined and the mixture appears crumbly. (This can also be done by hand with a pastry cutter or with a fork.)

Take out 1 1/2 cups of the mixture and set aside. Press the remaining mixture into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Add in the sour cream, flour and salt. Fold in the sliced peaches. Pour over the cooked crust. Take the remaining 1 1/2 cups of the dry mixture and sprinkle over the top of the peaches. Bake until the top is lightly browned and the filling is set, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool at least 1 hour before cutting into bars.

Store in the refrigerator.

    Your spammer commentary made me laugh out loud.

  7. Katrina says:

    These even look like summer!

  8. I had to laugh about your comments about Utah having the best peaches because my boyfriend is from Georgia and he is all about Georgia being the best at everything including producing the best peaches! Every time we go to the store he immediately is looking for Georgia peaches and when I sneak in some local Texas peaches (which are also very tasty) he says he can always tell they aren’t Georgia peaches by the taste! But to me I just love a good juicy peach (from anywhere) and these bars sound amazing!
