Small Batch Peach Crumb Bars
These peach crumb bars are a cross between many desserts: crisps, crumbles, pie, and shortbread bars! The recipe starts with an easy, brown butter shortbread base. You then top this shortbread cookie base with a layer of fresh peaches and buttery streusel. All these different layers provide contrasting crispy and crumbly textures in the bars. The best part? The recipe is small batch! The recipe instructs you to bake the peach crumb bars in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, resulting in 8 petite squares enough for 2 hungry folks to 4 more reasonable people (lol).

Why You Should Make Small Batch Peach Crumb Bars
In addition to being extremely delicious, here are all the reasons why you should make this peach crumb bars recipe:
This peach crumb bars recipe is very small batch.
Most peach crumb bar recipes instruct you to bake them in either a 9 x 13-inch cake pan, or a 8-inch square cake pan. However, since many of us are still avoiding large gatherings, I decided to make a very small batch version of a traditional peach crumb bars recipe. What does that mean? These peach crumb bars are made in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, resulting in a serving size approximately a quarter of the size of other recipes. That means 8 petite servings (or 2 generous ones). It’s the perfect amount for a small household!
This peach crumb bars recipe is perfect for the indecisive dessert lover.
Can’t decide between shortbread cookies or a peach crisp, crumble, or pie? Well, why not have all FOUR in one dessert? These peach crumb bars have all the different qualities of crisps, crumbles, pie, AND shortbread cookies. Each of the layers have different textures to satisfy everybody!

NO TIME TO BAKE?!
Over the past several years of running Hummingbird High, I kept a crucial aspect of my life hidden from my readers: I had a full-time, extremely demanding job in the tech world. In my debut cookbook, Weeknight Baking, I finally reveal the secrets to baking delicious desserts on a tight schedule.
