If you love peaches, this deliciously easy Peach Pie Bars recipe is just for you! No pie crust making skills needed!

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 today’s Peach 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.

Why this recipe works

This recipe for Peach Pie Bars is not what it sounds like at first glance. You’re not just making a peach pie in a rectangular baking sheet and cutting them into bar form. While that would be tasty, you’d still be going through all the work involved in making a pie crust.

Here, you make a batter than tastes like a butter pie crust but requires zero rolling, folding or trimming. A can of peach pie filling goes on top before baking, then you top the whole thing with a powdered sugar glaze.

The result is a delicious peach bar you can eat with your hands! These bars are so easy to transport and serve, so you can share with friends.

Ingredient Notes

To keep this dessert super easy, I used Lucky Leaf Peach Pie Filing. The peach flavor is sweet and juicy without the work of making your own from scratch.

If you have another favorite peach pie filling or want to sub a homemade filling, be my guest!

Try other favorite pie fillings to make this recipe into different flavored pie bars. Apple pie filling, cherry pie filling or blueberry would all work beautifully!

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1. Make the batter

Beat butter and sugar together in a large bowl until creamy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition, then the flour, baking powder and spices.

STEP 2. Top with pie filling

In a large rimmed baking sheet, spread 2/3 of batter in bottom of pan. Top with 2 cans of pie filling, spreading evenly. Drop the remaining batter by the teaspoonful on top of the pie filling.

STEP 3. Bake

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes, until top of pie bars is slightly browned. Allow to cool slightly in the pan while you make the glaze.

STEP 4. Glaze

Whisk together powdered sugar, cinnamon and the milk. Drizzle onto the warm pie bars, cut into squares or rectangles and enjoy!

How to Serve

On their own, these bars can be eaten with your hands but I especially love them served on a plate or in a bowl with a giant scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Can you really go wrong with peaches and ice cream?

Fresh whipped cream tastes amazing on Peach Pie Bars, too.

More Tips

  • Storing: Leftover bars should be stored covered in the refrigerator. They taste wonderful cold or you can let them come to room temperature before serving.
  • Glaze: Start with just a tablespoon of the milk then add a little more at a time until you get the glaze to the consistency you prefer. If you want a super thin glaze, you might need more than the amount of milk listed in the recipe.
  • Pan: Make sure your baking pan has at least 1 inch high edges. I made these in my 15 x 10 baking pan which was perfect!

No pie crust skills? No problem. Thanks to these easy to make Peach Pie Bars you don’t have to miss out on the great taste of homemade peach pie.

  1. hi!i was wondering how many cups of homemade peach pie filling i need to be the same as your can of pie filling.i need a reply quickly please.and please do not contact me my my email address,thank u!!!! 🙂

  2. 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.

    1. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. Those look delicious! Thanks so much for joining in The Thankful for Our Community Hop. I’m a new follower through facebook and twitter. Your sweets all look so good!

  6. 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:-)

  7. 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.

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

  9. 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!!!!!

    1. 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!

  10. 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?

  11. 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. 🙂

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

  13. 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!

    1. 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 🙂
      Aimee
