Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375º.
  2. Make the crust by combining ¾ cup flour, powdered sugar, salt, and 6 tablespoons of butter. Cut butter into dry ingredients till the butter is the size of small peas (may use a pastry blender or even a food processor). Sprinkle the mixture into the bottom of an 8 x 8-inch pan. Press into an even layer over the bottom of pan using your hands. Bake 10-12 minutes or till just starting to brown.
  3. When the crust is baked, spread preserves over the top. Set aside.
  4. Gently mix the peach slices with lemon juice. Toss the peaches with the four, cornstarch and cinnamon. Set aside.
  5. Make the streusel topping by mixing the remainder of the butter, flour and brown sugar using a pastry blender or food processor just till combined and crumbly.
  6. Arrange the peach slices, overlapping slightly if needed, in a single layer across the jam. Sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon of sugar. Sprinkle evenly with the streusel topping.
  7. Bake 25-30 minutes or the filling is bubbling and the topping is golden brown. Cool completely before cutting.
  8. This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a 9 x 13-inch pan. Baking times remain the same.
