Peach Crumb Bars

Ingredients

Cooking Spray

Crumble and Crust:

1 ½ Cups All-Purpose Flour

½ Cup White Sugar

½ Teaspoon Baking Powder

1 Pinch Salt

10 Tablespoons Cold Unsalted Butter, Cut Into Cubes

1 Large Egg Yolk

1 Tablespoon Cold Water

Peach Filling:

2 Cups Fresh Peach Slices, Or More To Taste

½ Cup White Sugar

2 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

¼ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

¼ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

Directions

Step 1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Coat an 8×8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Step 2 Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Next, cut in the cold butter using 2 forks or a pastry cutter then slowly mix in the egg yolk and cold water. Don’t worry if the dough seems really crumbly; it should be!

Step 3 Press 1/2 of the crumble mixture into the prepared pan to make the crust. Save the rest for the top of the bars.

Step 4 Stir together peach slices, sugar, flour, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg until combined. Evenly add peach filling to the top of the crust.

Step 5 Sprinkle the remaining crumble over the peach filling.

Step 6 Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and set, 30 to 38 minutes. Cool bars to room temperature, then cut and serve.
