Fresh Peach Crumb Bars

Fresh Peach Crumb Bars ~ there’s nothing like soft, fresh, dripping down your chin – juicy, sweet peaches baked in a simple crust to make me swoon!  This simple, easy recipe can be adapted to any of your favorite fresh summer fruits!

I find myself walking through the kitchen picking up these fuzzy fruits and inhaling the sweet aroma.  Peaches are an amazing fruit.  Given this obsession it was only a matter of time before I made yet another peach dessert.

These super easy bar cookies can be made with any fruit or berry.  I think blueberries and peaches would also be nice – but that idea came to me after I finished making these.  Oh no – guess I’ll have to make another batch!  These bars start with a simple crumb crust.  Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Cut in cold cubed butter until the mixture resembles coarse sand.
