Peach Crumb Bars

  • 3 cups and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, separated
  • 1 cup and 1 cup granulated sugar, separated
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon and 1/4 teaspoon salt, separated
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (cold)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 5 cups diced peaches (about 7 peaches, peeled)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×13-inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 3 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  3. Use a pastry blender to cut in the butter, and then the egg. (The dough will be crumbly.)
  4. Pat half of the dough into the pan.
  5. Place the pan and the remainder of the dough in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  6. Place the diced peaches in a large bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix gently.
  7. In a separate bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  8. Pour over peaches, and mix in gently.
  9. Spread the peach mixture evenly over the crust.
  10. Crumble the remaining dough over the peach layer.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.
  12. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
