After a weekend of watching the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) basketball tournament – congratulations, Virginia Cavaliers - without snacks on hand, it hit me: March madness has arrived and I’m not ready.

Realizing that, I began searching through my most recent copies of Every Day with Rachael Ray. Ironically, I found this recipe on the advertisement page for Lucky Leaf Premium Peach Pie Filling. These just peachy pie bars can be completed with or without a glaze, but are delicious either way.

Batter Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 (21 ounce) can Lucky Leaf Premium Peach Pie Filling

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ᵒF.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. Add flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg and ginger.
  3. Spread three-quarters of batter into a 13x9-inch pan. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes.
  4. Spread Lucky Leaf Premium Peach Pie Filling evenly over hot crust. Drop teaspoons of remaining batter over filling layer. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes.
  5. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  6. For optional glaze: Whisk powdered sugar, cinnamon and milk to desired consistency. Drizzle over warm bars.
