"This is another one of those recipes that I've been making forever. I have baked it for many a holiday; baptisms, birthdays, showers, barbecues, name it - it's been there like a familiar guest. I love it when peaches are in season because it makes for a refreshing tasty dessert, but more often than not, when peaches are not in season, I use canned peaches in place of the fresh. These bars are refreshing with its cake layer on the bottom which is then covered with a cheesecake layer and then topped with peaches. It's not a heavy, weight-you-down dessert but a spring-like satisfying one. Hope you enjoy it."

This definitely makes a good amount if you need to feed several people. The flavors go well together. I did need to bake it quite a bit longer than the recipe stated. How much longer, I don't know. I lost track. I used canned peaches that I drained and rinsed. It worked out fine. I made this for Billboard Recipe Tag 2020. Thanks ForeverMama for the recipe.
