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

- 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.

- Bake for about 25-35 minutes, or until golden brown.
