Peach season is officially here! It is my favorite time of the year. Peaches are hands down my very favorite fruit and they are so versatile! You can use them in both sweet and savory dishes. I kid you not, I visit my local produce stand every other day August through September to buy more peaches. I probably eat 2 peaches a day during peach season, that’s how much I love them. The only bummer is peach season only lasts 2 months out of the year and if you buy peaches outside of peach season, they typically are no good! So get ready for loads of new peach recipes over the next couple of months!
My favorite peach dessert of all time are these Peach Crack Bars. They are just that…. crack. They are no bake and made with fresh chopped peaches and there is no peeling involved. This dessert is so easy to throw together and will knock your socks off. It is the first dessert I make each year when the first picking of peaches becomes available and I probably make it 4-5 times throughout peach season. I love it that much! It starts with a Golden Oreo and Vanilla Wafer Crust and is then layered with a whipped cream and cream cheese frosting and then it’s topped with loads of fresh chopped peaches tossed in a subtle orange almond glaze.
Tips & Tricks:
- If you aren’t a fan of peach skin, you can definitely peel them but I prefer them left on and it makes the whole process a lot easier.
- If you are rushed for time, you can skip the glaze all together and just top the bars with fresh chopped peaches. I have actually done this a couple times and it’s still incredible.
- This dessert will only last 2-3 days in the fridge before the peaches start to brown and get soggy so be sure to eat it quickly (good luck making it last that long anyway!)
