Peach Crumb Bars
Buttery crumb bars filled with fresh summer peaches. It's like a pie in bar form!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Zest of one lemon
- 1 cup unsalted butter , chilled and cut into cubes
- 1 large eggs
- 4 cups peaches , peeled and sliced (about 4 large)
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup of the sugar, baking powder, ground ginger, salt and lemon zest. Add the butter and toss with the flour mixture. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter until the size of peas. Whisk the egg slightly, and stir it into the crumb mixture. Dough will be crumbly. Press half of the dough into the prepared baking pan.
In another bowl, stir together remaining ½ cup sugar and cornstarch. Add the sliced peaches and gently mix. Spoon the peaches over the crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the peach mixture.
Bake for 45-55 minutes, until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Stores really well in the fridge.
