Delectable cinnamon crumb bars with creamy cheesecake and sweet peach pie filling.
Can you believe that today is September 1 and that tomorrow is Labor Day? Wasn’t it just yesterday I was sharing with you 4th of July recipes, and now it’s time to wrap up summer? It seems like these past few weeks, the universe gave up on summer and dove straight into fall. Stores have Halloween decorations ready. Apple and pumpkin recipes are popping up in my timeline. I even saw a recipe for Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving. Really? Hate to break it to you, but summer isn’t over until the pumpkin spice lattes are in. Until then, I am squeezing in one last peach recipe – Peach Cheesecake Crumb Bars.
I had the idea for these peach bars but didn’t know where to start. Cobbler bars? That would mean a biscuit like topping. Crisp bars? Getting closer. Then I saw them on Smitten Kitchen – Blueberry Crumb Bars. Crumb bars. I like the sound of that. All you do is reserve some dough from the bottom layer and sprinkle on top.
Of course it isn’t a Moosey recipe without throwing some cheesecake into the mix. I took the cheesecake layer from my chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake bars and layered that on top of the bottom layer. Topped it with peach pie filling then sprinkled bits of dough on top.
I call these take along treats, but truth is they can be a tad bit messy when you pick them up. Just lick your fingers when done.
