Peach Cream Cheese Bars

Time: 90 minutes

This is my own version of a few of our favorites – shortbread, cheese cake and pralines… I hope you enjoy this easy, delicious, peachy recipe!

Music Selection: Eels – Peach Blossom

Ingredients:

Crust:

1 cup butter, softened

¼ cup brown sugar

½ tsp salt

2 cups flour

Filling:

4 large peaches, peeled and diced finely

2 – 250 g cream cheese

¼ cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

¼ cup cornstarch

Topping:

¼ cup brown sugar

½ cup chopped pecans

1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with butter.

In a bowl, with pastry beaters, beat the butter, flour, salt, and brown sugar until crumbly dough. Pour into pan and press firmly. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, cornstarch, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. When well mixed, add in the peaches. Pour over the warm crust.

In a small bowl, mix the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the cream cheese layer. Bake in oven for 45 – 50 minutes. Let cool. Then place in fridge for several hours. This is great for BBQ parties, potlucks and even high noon tea!!
