Peachy Keen Bars

Check out Pinned It, Made It Monday at Country Girl at Home.

I made these for my family last week.  I had heard of the cake mix cobbler before but not using cream cheese.  It's a  great recipe that we may make again in the near future.

This was my pin.  Peachy Keen Bars from Paula Todora on Just A Pinch recipes.

Cake mix, cream cheese and peaches.....

First you make the crumb crust out of the cake mix, butter, and egg. ( I love that I can use my notebook to help in the kitchen.)

Place all the crumb mixture except 1 1/2 cups (topping) in a prepared pan , press down lightly, and bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Prepare the cream cheese topping, drain and cut up the sliced peaches.  (Don't laugh at my vintage bowls!  They have been in use for almost 40 years!)

Scatter the peaches over the partially baked crust.  Pour the cream cheese mixture over the top of the peaches.  Cover with the 1 1/2 cup of saved crumbs.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Let cool and enjoy!  It is better cold in our opinion.

I'll have to make these soon! It sounds simple too! I don't care for peaches (need to work on that, I know!), but for the rest of the family! Thanks for sharing, Sondra, and thank for participating in Pinned it, Made it Monday. Do you know how to link this post to my blog today....that would be great so others can come see it!

Have a great week, Sondra!

Love those vintage bowls!

That recipe looks good! I've used cake mix and butter like this before on top of fruit but never with cream cheese. Sounds good!

Those look yummy. I love these posts of you actually making something you pinned. I'm always pinning, never making.

I made your peach/cake/cream cheese. LOVED IT! Found it on pinterest but then the pin stopped working! so I looked you up on google. This recipe is nicely written, unlike other cobbler-like recipes that don't spread out the cream cheese properly. Thanks Again!
