These Peach Crumb Bars have juicy sliced peaches baked between two layers of cinnamon-nutmeg spiced crumble. Each bite tastes just like a peach crumble pie except it’s much easier to make than a pie! Top with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for a perfect peach dessert!!!

In the USA, fresh peaches are in season at the beginning of May and continue through late September. During these summer months, the grocery store produce departments’ displays are stacked high with succulent peaches. Get your napkins ready!!! These juicy fruits are ready for everything from cooking in a savory sauce to baking in a deep dish pie. Not to mention filling your kitchen with steam while canning and making preserves for the colder months.


My Peach Crumb Bars are made with fresh sliced peaches baked between two layers of cinnamon-nutmeg spiced crumble. It’s so divine!!! The first remark my daughter made when she tried it was, “This tastes just like a peach crumble pie!”. She’s totally right! All it needs is a big scoop of vanilla ice or a dollop fresh whipped cream for a perfect summery dessert. If you want to make Peach Crumb Bars, when peaches aren’t in season, you can also use thawed frozen peaches or drained canned peaches.

  • Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the cold cubed butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add the egg yolks and cold water; stir it in until fully combined (you may also use the pastry cutter to help blend it in).
