Peach Bars with Almond Drizzle

These lovely bars are as scrumptious as can be. Peach Bars with Almond Drizzle have four layers with a shortbread crust, followed by a peaches and sour cream filling, a streusel topping, and then an almond-flavored powdered sugar icing. To say they were F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C  is an understatement. They were utterly phenomenal. I LOVED this marvelous dessert.

Last month I tried a luscious recipe called Pineapple Bars with Coconut Drizzle. When we had peaches coming out our ears from the six peach trees in our backyard I was hunting down recipes from everywhere to use them up. Then I thought about this recipe and thought it would be just as great with peaches as it was with pineapple. Instead of using coconut flavoring in the icing I decided to substitute almond extract and almond flavor with the peaches was amazing.

I really love peaches–but give me a peach dessert and I’m in seventh heaven! I have to admit I’ve enjoyed baking up peach cobblers, peach cakes, peach cookies, peach pies, and other amazing desserts trying to use up all those peaches. And, these lovely Peach Bars with Almond Drizzle are going to make your mouth water. I don’t think I have the vocabulary to adequately express just how amazing these cookies really are. But if you enjoy peaches and almond flavoring you’re going to fall in love with this spectacular dessert. Once your family sinks their teeth into these jewels, there will be no one who will refuse a second piece! Or a third…..:)

Reserve one cup of crumbs for topping.  Place the remaining crumbs in a greased 9×13″ baking dish.

As crust is baking, prepare filling. Peel and dice peaches. You will need sour cream, eggs, sugar, UNBLEACHED flour, salt and the peaches.

While bars are baking, prepare almond drizzle. I used these ingredients to make the drizzle. Whisk to combine. Allow bars to cool completely before adding drizzle.
