Course Dessert, Special Treat, Tea Time


Shortbread Crust:

  • 2 sticks unsalted, softened butter
  • 2 c. flour (240 grams)
  • 1/2 c. sugar (100 grams)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Peach Filling

  • 2 c. sugar (400 grams)
  • 1/2 c. cornstarch (about 65 grams)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 300 grams fresh peach puree (about 2-3 large peaches)
  • juice of 1/4 lemon (if you love lemon, use 1/2 lemon)


For the crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper that has been lightly buttered or sprayed. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, flour, sugar, and salt. Mix just until the dough comes together.
  • Press dough evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 12 to 14 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. (See video). Remove from oven and start on the filling.

Peach Filling:

  • Start by making the fresh peach puree while the crust is baking. I used a handheld Cuisinart immersion blender, but a food processor will work too. You'll need 300 grams of peach puree. I suggest using a scale to measure the proper amount. Depending on the size of peaches, you'll need 2 to 3 large peaches, or several smaller peaches.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. Whisk in the eggs. Add peach puree and whisk together until fully combined. Whisk in lemon juice.
  • Pour filling over the baked crust. It's ok if the crust is still warm. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes until the crust is set and lightly browned on top (see video for browning). Baking time will vary depending on your oven.
  • Remove from oven, cool, and sift powdered sugar over the top. Cut into 12 to 24 bars. They're ready to serve! Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
