Peaches are the stone fruit harbinger of summer!

Local South Carolina peaches are starting to arrive at farm stands and grocery stores.

I found a recipe for Peach Cobbler Bars that is easy to cobble together

in my July/August edition of Taste of the South Magazine.

I added blackberries and a touch of bourbon for a some additional Southern flavor.

The bourbon adds a depth of flavor to the fruit, but use orange juice

if you prefer for an alcohol free alternative.

Peach-Blackberry Cobbler Bars,

recipe adapted from Taste of the South Magazine

Makes 12 – 18 bars


2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar, divided

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

8 cups fruit: Fresh peaches, peeled and diced and blackberries. (I used 5 cups of peaches and 3 cups of berries)

2 tablespoons bourbon (substitute orange juice if you prefer)

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 sticks cold butter, cubed

1⁄2 cup sour cream

1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil;

spray with nonstick baking spray with flour. Set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup brown sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon.

Stir in peaches and bourbon and blackberries until combined.

In another large bowl, whisk together remaining 1 cup brown sugar, flour, oats, baking powder, and salt.

Using a fork or pastry blender, cut in butter until crumbly. In a small bowl,

whisk together egg, sour cream, and vanilla until smooth.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring until combined.

Press three-fourths of flour mixture into bottom of prepared pan.

Stir fruit mixture; spread evenly in pan. Sprinkle with remaining flour mixture.

Bake 45 to 55 minutes, or until bars are set and golden brown.

Cover pan with foil to prevent overbrowning during last 10 – 15 minutes of baking time if needed.

Allow bars to cool and cut into squares.

Note: I used a peeler with a serrated blade for easy peeling,

but use the boiling water/ no knife-method to remove the peach skins, here.

    I am going to make these tomorrow! I have a ton of peaches and blackberries and 2 hungry little fishermen [and 2 bigger fishermen] who will gobble them up! I love the addition of bourbon Mary, every good Southern recipe should contain a little bourbon :) Love the Thoreau quote too~

    You always share such enticing desert bars!! I love the addition of berries to the peaches that you made, the combination is tasty as well as beautiful, I tasted a fruit bar that was called a kuken, but it was too time consuming so I searched online to no avail, I can’t tell you how delighted and grateful I am that you shared this recipe, Thank you so much!!!!

    (Mary, I am wondering if the carmel apple bars you posted last fall using a oatmeal cookie mix could work equally well substituting the peaches and berries? Or a cake mix? My husband is pre-diabetic so trying to cut some sugar).

    I made this for a family dinner on Labor Day weekend 2017. So delicious and enjoyed by everyone. Mine was a little soupy so we served it like a cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Thanks!
