peaches and cream bars

July 25, 2011
My dear friend Afton lives in the heart of the Texas hill country where farm stands line the roads stocked with produce from local farms.  Among the most popular produce, are their Fredericksburg peaches.
 Afton obviously knows the way straight to my heart because she brought me a basket full of these fresh peaches she picked up along her way to come visit me.  Yeah, love that gal.
These bars are more cake-y than crumble-y, which is the way I like it!  I added almond extract to the batter for an extra warm, nutty flavor.  Peaches are the quintessential fruit, which by default make these peaches and cream bars the official dessert of this summer.  

Peaches and Cream Bars 
For batter
1 cup unsalted butter,  room temperature
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4 eggs
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

For peach mixture
3 cups fresh ripe peaches, coarsely chopped 
1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

For glaze
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9 x 13 casserole dish by lining with aluminum foil and spraying with non-stick cooking spray; Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat your butter and sugar until fluffy. 
  3. Mix in one egg at a time, scraping down the sides of your mixing bowl in between each addition.  Add the vanilla and almond extracts. 
  4. Slowly mix in your flour, salt and cinnamon until just combined.
  5. Separately combine your peaches, lemon juice, brown sugar, spices and vanilla.
  6. Pour about 3/4 of your batter into the prepared baking dish then evenly distribute the peach mixture on top of the batter. 
  7. Drop the remaining of the batter on top of the peach mixture.
  8. Place in the oven to bake for between 40-50 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges and slightly firm to the touch.
  9. Let it cool completely before adding the glaze.
  10. To prepare the glaze, mix the 3 ingredients together.  The consistency can be adjusted by adding more milk to make it more smooth and, conversely, more powdered sugar to make it thicker.  

On an unrelated note, this is brilliant.  I love this man.

I've been on a peach dessert run lately and these have just been added to the top of my list! Wow, these little bars look SO incredibly moist and I'm loving the icing drizzle :)
