Slightly crispy on top with a moist crust, these crumble bars are filled with fresh strawberries and peaches. Strawberry Peach Crumble Bars are delicious and the perfect way to use your favorite seasonal fruits.
Crust and Crumble
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 stick butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, beaten
Fruit Filling
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup sliced peaches
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoon cornstarch
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, and baking powder. Add butter into the mixture and break the butter into pieces using a pastry cutter or two forks. You want the butter to be pea sized, but they don’t have to be uniform in size. Fold in the beaten egg and vanilla extract until combined.
  3. Reserve ¾ cup of the mixture for topping. Press the rest of the dough into the bottom of the baking pan until evenly spread. Bake the crust for about 10 minutes until it becomes golden brown. Allow the crust to cool for several minutes.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, combine the sliced peaches and strawberries. Add brown sugar and cornstarch. Mix them until well combined. Spoon the filling over the cooled crust, and then sprinkle the rest of the dough evenly on top for the crumbly topping.
  5. Place the baking pan back into the oven and bake for another 20-23 minutes until the top has turned a golden brown and the filling is bubbly and jam-like.
  6. Remove the baking pan from the oven and allow them to cool completely before refrigerating for about 15-30 minutes.
  7. Cut these crumble “bars” into 9-12 bars.
  8. Serve these immediately.
