Fruity desserts have some of the best names. There are buckles, Betties, slumps, dumps, pandowdys, grunts, crisps, crumbles, and, of course, cobblers. Cobblers are one of my favorite desserts because they're so easy and so delicious.
I'm not a big fan of plain biscuit topping on my cobblers, though, so I like to try to jazz them up a little.For these peach cobbler bars, I went with a base that's sweet and buttery (because how can you go wrong with sweet and buttery?) and a simple, lightly spiced peach filling. And they are so (so!) good!
Peach Cobbler Bars
- Peach Filling
- 2 c . peeled and thinly sliced peaches* about 4 peaches
- 3 T . granulated sugar
- 2 T . all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp . cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp . nutmeg
- Cobbler Bars
- 1/2 c . butter at room temperature
- 1 c . granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp . vanilla extract
- 1 2/3 c . all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp . baking powder
- 1/4 tsp . salt
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease an 8x8 baking pan.
To make the filling, stir together peaches, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside while you prepare the bars. If your peaches are juicy, pour off accumulated juices before you add in the sugar, flour, etc.
To make the bars, beat together butter and sugar, until light in color and well-combined.
Stir in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add in vanilla extract, and stir until combined.
Add the flour, baking powder, and salt; mix until just incorporated.
Add three-fourths of the dough mixture into the prepared pan, smoothing as needed.
Pour the peaches evenly over the dough.
Drop the remaining dough evenly over the peaches, and spread until it covers most of the peach filling.
Bake for about 25-35 minutes, or until golden brown.
