::Peach Kuchen Bars::

Remember way back when...to that giveaway I had with the Kuchen recipes? Well, my aunt (the same one who I got the ::Cool Cucumber Pasta:: recipe from) didn't post a comment on that blog post, but instead emailed me this recipe. I was contemplating what to make for a dessert for today and then was looking at some recipes I haven't tried and this was one of them. I love desserts with fruit in them, and my husband and I both love peaches! How perfect; ::Peach Kuchen Bars::! These are super easy to make and take very little time prepare. I must not forget to mention that they are super delicious! Before I met Jamyson, I hadn't had Kuchen before; that's like me being Norwegian and not having had Lefsa before. Uff da. Enjoy!
::Peach Kuchen Bars::
Crust:
1 c. margarine, melted
2 eggs
2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together & spread on greased jelly roll pan.
Take 1 large can and 1 small can of peaches and drain real well. Cut-up peaches and lay on crust.
Custard:
4 eggs well beaten
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1 3/4 c. whipping cream
Mix all together (add cream last)Pour over everything. Sprinkle with cinnamon on top. (However much you like)Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Starting out with 2 sticks of butter...this would even make Paula Dean excited!

...then adding flour...

...and sugar...

I then beat together the eggs and vanilla....


...like so.

and added it to the stirred butter, flour, and sugar mix.

It gets nice and smooth like this.

Ready to spread in the pan.

All spread out.


I had an abundance of canned peaches. I meant to buy the individual cans for my lunches and when I got home I had the regular sized cans. Oops...but they came in handy today!
