Made these to bring to a school potluck dinner and everyone loved them! (It was for my sons Speech team, so I labeled the bars "Speach Crumb Bars" - haha!) The touch of cinnamon is especially nice with the peaches. The fresh peaches at my grocery didn't look great so I used a 28-ounce can of yellow cling peach halves instead, and the bars were delicious.

Awesome flavour, easy to make and great to take to a potluck or for a crowd.

I made a variation using blueberries for a potluck (due to an allergy to peaches), and it was a delicious way to serve dessert to a crowd. Depending on the sweetness of the fruit, I might try with a bit less sugar next time.

Why do you make impossible to print your recipes. It is so madding.
