PEACH CRUMB BARS

Peaches and I have had a rough history. I don’t think it was until last summer that I really gave them another go. They were just so beautiful in my grocery store, straight out of the Garden of Eden, that I had to.

Juice running down your chin, those peaches from Publix were divine! Which led me to made this Peaches and Cream Pie and this Easy Peach Cobbler.

CAN I MAKE THESE AHEAD?

I wouldn’t suggest making these too far ahead of time because the filling will soften the crust. The day of or the day before is fine.
