Ingredients

  • filling
  • 2 large ripe but firm white peaches
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • dough
  • 1 cup, 2 sticks, unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup oat flour (substitute regular flour if you like)
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats (quick cooking or regular)


Method

  1. Set the oven to 350F
  2. Wash and slice the peaches, but do not peel them. Put the slices in a bowl and toss gently with the lemon juice and the cornstarch. Set aside.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together and then beat in the salt and the vanilla. Blend in the flours and stir just until the mixture comes together in a crumbly texture. Do not add the rolled oats at this time.
  4. Take about 2/3 of the dough and press lightly into the bottom of a 9x9 baking dish that has been lightly sprayed. I like to line it with a piece of parchment so I can lift out the bars for neat cutting, but this isn't necessary. Flour your hands if the dough is too sticky to pat down.
  5. Give the peaches a final toss and lay them out across the dough. If they are super juicy, don't add all the extra juices.
  6. Mix the oats into the remaining dough with your fingertips. Crumble it over the peaches. Don't worry about covering all the fruit, some can peek through.
  7. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, until the crust is just beginning to turn golden around the edges and the fruit is bubbling.
  8. Let cool a bit before cutting.
