It is so nice and warm these days and we are loving it.  With the warmer weather comes some of my favorite desserts.  Peach pie being one of them.  There is nothing better than a warm peach pie or cobbler with a scoop of ice cream on top.  Whenever I made a delicious peach pie I only use the best pie filling from Lucky Leaf.   I love the quality of lucky leaf and you can trust that it will bake up something delicious.

When thinking of a recipe to make I decided to combine my favorite things.  Peach Pie filling and a creamy cheesecake center.  I made them into bars because it is so nice for cutting and taking to gatherings.  Not to mention they are so easy to make!

These bars are made with minimal ingredients and are so simple to make.  They come together within 20 minutes and are ready to put into the oven in no time at all.

I couldn’t believe how insanely good my first bite was. Every layer was perfect. But once I bit into the center with the delicious peach filling and creamy cheesecake center I was hooked. I couldn’t stop eating it.

Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 (21 ounce) LUCKY LEAF® peach pie filling
  • Cheesecake Center:
  • 1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • Glaze:
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbs milk
Instructions
  1. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Beat in vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl combine flour and salt. Add to the creamed mixture. Mix until combined.
  3. In a medium sized bowl beat together cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the egg and beat until combined.
  4. Grease a 15x10x1 pan or 9×13, whichever one you decide to use. (I used a 9x13 but cooking time will be longer) Spread 3 cups batter in the bottom. Spread the cream cheese layer on top and lastly Spread with pie filling. Drop remaining batter on top of pie filling.
  5. Bake at 350 for 25-30 (If using a 9x13 increase time to 35) minutes or until toothpick comes clean. Cool on wire rack. Combine powdered sugar and milk for the glaze and drizzle over the bars.
  6. I like to let the bars cool completely and refrigerate them for 3 hours for easier cutting.

  1. I don’t know what I am dying more over…the gooey peach filling in the middle or that glaze! Either way, I know this would be a hit at any summer BBQ!

  2. the recipe doesn’t show the vanilla or almond extract being added

  3. ARLENE FRENCH says:

    THE PEACH PIE BARS LOOK SO GOOD.

  4. These were easy to make and very good, EXCEPT that the almond extract taste was a bit overpowering. Next time I will reduce the amount used, or maybe even eliminate the glaze altogether.

    Thank you for the yummy recipe!

  5. Hi Alyssa. Melissa’s Southern Style kitchen posted your recipe for “Peaches and Cream Pie Bars” on her FB page today. My question is whether the crust is more like cake or more like pie/cookie? Thanks for you reply.

  6. Melinda says:

    How can you adapt this to use fresh peaches ?

  7. Wonderful…next time I would omit the Almond Extract from the icing…did not like the flavor and it was a bit overpowering….

  8. Hi I cannot see the whole recipe can you send to me via e-mail Thanks you!

  9. Barbara P says:

    Do you think this would work with apple or lemon pie filling? Sounds good with peach also.

  10. Carolyn says:

    If there are any leftovers, do they have to be refrigerated? Was thinking about taking these to a family reunion and it is a 4 hour drive from my house.

    • Yes I refrigerate them and take them out about 15 minutes before cutting so they can soften a bit. 🙂

  11. 1 (21 ounce) LUCKY LEAF® peach pie filling. I live in South Africa, who can I use as replacement as we don’t have that here, please,

    • Use your local fruit. Can cook with a little sugar to make it more filling like. Adjust flavorings to complement your fruit.

  12. Becky Wilmer says:

    Thank you so much for this Recipe,can’t wait to make them I just know they are Delicious

  13. Is the batter suppose to be thick? I found it difficult to spread the top layer.

  14. Rochelle says:

    These are a hit where ever you take them! Try blueberry, you won’t be disappointed.

  15. juan rodriguez says:

    Just want to make sure when it has the two directions of 1 and 2 do i put in one cup of sugar for each or two cups each? Want to make sure ill be making it right.

  16. Hi Alyssa! I was thinking of making this but I wanted to use fresh peaches. Could you please let me know what I need to do to make it equivalent to a peach pie filling? Thank you!

    • Honestly, I would just lay the fresh peaches right on top! That would be amazing!

    • You could cook the peaches with a little sugar and a tiny bit of corn starch to thicken any sauce. Maybe a touch of cinnamon. Let it cool.

  17. nancy32408 says:

    Do you think these bars can be refrigerated for about 3 hours, cut into squares and frozen separately into little sandwich bags?

  18. These sound amazing! I’m wondering, what is the difference b/w vanilla extract and vanilla? Both are listed in the ingredients. Thanks!!

  19. Made these to take to a BBQ, and they were a hit! Next time I make them I may try a different flavoring for the glaze other than the almond extract…..maybe maple? And I may add more pie filling…..I like LOTS of peaches! But these were so easy to make, and absolutely delicious!

  20. These look so amazing! Love the idea of doing pie in bar form!

  21. I printed the recipe. Started making the bars. Added all the eggs and sugar when the first step said add eggs and sugar. Then it says add eggs and sugar with cream cheese. Very confusing and now I think I have wasted 4 eggs, a cup of butter and 2 cups of sugar 🙁 Please make the printed recipe more specific!
