Peach Cobbler Cookie Bars

Peach season is one of my favorite times of the year! We’re getting towards the end of it, but there’s still plenty of time to whip up a batch of these Peach Cobbler Cookie Bars! All the wonderful, gooey, sweet flavors of a peach cobbler are nestled on top of a buttery, almond cookie base that takes after a sugar cookie.

A peach cobbler that is portable and you can grab with one hand, how much better does it get?! Another fantastic feature about these cookie bars is that they can be made year round. If you don’t have access to fresh peaches, you can thaw out frozen peaches (and drain of excess liquid), or open a can of pre-made peach pie filling! A fuss-free dessert is the way to my heart.

With the holidays right around the corner and the time of year we tend to gather with friends and family more, these Peach Cobbler Cookie Bars would be the perfect addition to your dinner table! Serve them slightly warm and top them off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. To get the perfect bite, let the ice cream melt slightly on top of your warm Peach Cobbler Cookie Bar, dig your spoon straight through the creamy, cold ice cream, crunchy topping, gooey peach filling and land at the bottom of a soft, dreamy cookie base.

Ingredients

For the cookie base:

  • 1 stick butter (8 tablespoons), softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup flour, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the peach filling: 

  • 5 peaches, cored and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For the crumble topping:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Splash of almond extract

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

For the cookie base:

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Wipe down the edges of the bowl with a rubber spatula, add in the egg and turn the mixer speed on low until combined. Add in both of the extracts and mix until combined.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. With the mixer speed on low, slowly add the flour mixture into the butter mixture until a dough forms. Evenly spread the dough into the bottom of a 13×9 baking pan that has been sprayed and lined with parchment paper.

For the peach filling:

  1. In a medium bowl, toss the sliced peaches together with the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon until all the peaches are evenly coated.
  2. Pour the peach filling over the top of the cookie base that is in the 13×9 pan.

For the crumble topping:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, flour, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder and splash of almond extract until completely combined and a crumble forms.
  2. Evenly top the peaches with the crumble topping.
  3. Bake the Peach Cobbler Cookie Bars for 55-60 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean. Let cool slightly prior to cutting into bars. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

 

Notes

  • If you are using a pre-made peach pie filling, simply skip the first step and ingredients listed under the “For the peach filling” in the instructions category. You can pour the pre-made peach pie filling right over the top of the cookie base and top with the crumble topping.
