Peach Pie Bars

I happen to love pie. However, I hate pie crust. LOATHE it.

Wait, scratch that. I love eating pie crust, but I can never get it to look pretty. I’ve followed all those fun tutorials on Pinterest, but no luck for me.

So making pie is not my thing. I’m okay with that. (sorta). But, making these pie bars was easy, and totally makes me feel better. PLUS, bonus, this recipe makes a 15×10 baking sheet. More pie, less work. Win-win.

For the filling I used Lucky Leaf Pie Filling. Have you tried this brand yet? I didn’t think there would be a difference from the Kroger brand I usually use…but this was wonderful. The fruit was still so vibrant in color, and the filling was nice and thick (not runny at all)!

    Oooh! This looks good. I have another pie bar on my list to make soon. Need to add this to the list too! I have to admit, I get a tad anxious every time I attempt pie crust, so pie bars are alright with me. YUM!

      Thanks Amy. Anxious doesn’t even describe how I feel…more like frustrated. I can get the taste right, just not the look of the crust! Thanks for stopping by :)

    Most definitely have too try these this weekend. Can you substitute and use a different pie filling.

    Oh. My. Yumminess!! No pie crust to roll…double yumminess! I have a can of cherry pie filling – sounds good enough to me! :)

    For not being a peach fan, these bars sure look tasty. I also loathe working with the crusts but I do LOVE eating them! :)

    I would faint and say what??? You don’t make crust? And then I will remember the epic fail I had a few hours ago. I ended up using *gasp* store bought. These bars are awesome…even if they are peach, lol. :)

    Ah, pie crust… I always just pretend I was purposely going for the “rustic look” with my pies, ha ha! But these bars look soooo good, who needs a crust anyways?

    Hi –
    Just wanted to tell you, that you aren’t the only one “threatened” by a pie crust. I am 54 years old, and can’t for the life of me, make a pie crust!! My mother in law can make a killer pie crust, and she has sat with me and tried to help me, and I STILL can’t do it. One time I went from attempting to make a homemade one, to buying a box mix to make on, and then finally ran to the store and bought one of those pie crusts that you just unroll and dump into the pie pan!!!! I used to be a caterer – obviously NOT a baker!!! :0) They say to “just keep trying.” I say, if I haven’t gotten it by this age, it is time to give it up!!!! GOOD LUCK AIMEE!!!!!

      Thank you Gayle. I think I have given up (although I know I will attempt every once in a while, and fail). But it’s good to have this little pie bar recipe on the back burner!

    Looks Amazing
    Peach is one of my favorite fruits
    and Btw you aren’t alone in the pie crust issue :P
    Its a suffer for me and i just can’t make any success in doing it
    So I simply gave up making any pies :((

    Easy pie?! Yes, please! I’m loving that glaze you drizzled over the top!

    Oh my, I am literally drooling right now. This looks sooo good! I’ve never tried Lucky Leaf, but I’ll have to now. I’ve been wanting to make something peach lately, but have been afraid since the peaches at my grocery store aren’t looking that great.

    One of my best friends/roommates hates pie crust, so I’m going to have to introduce her to these!

    I love that we both had the same idea on pie bars. These are so yummy looking and so much easier than rolling out dough:-)

    Pie crust is my nemesis! I can never make it look pretty for the life of me so these bars are right up my alley. And peach is my favorite flavor.

    Pie bars! Genius!! I love this ideas and peach is one of my favorites! don’t tell apple and pumpkin I said that! ;)

    Thanks for linking up and good luck Aimee!

    These look delicious! I’m a sweets person all the way…too much so…

    I like to make pie crusts, though. I don’t know that mine look that great, but I enjoy making them. I most often make cream pies or use a crumb crust for the top crust, though.

      I love the taste of pie crusts, but can’t say that I love making them! Cream pies? Oh yum. Thanks for stopping by Deborah!
