Crumbly Peach Cobbler Squares

This is inspired by a recipe a good friend of mine found online a while back. 
The original recipe made 24 squares but I have cut that in half along with a couple other changes of my own.
These crumbly treats are simply amazing! 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

First the dough!

1 1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of cane sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Sift together 1 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of cane sugar, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

Mix in 1 egg.

Chop up 1/2 cup of cold unsalted butter and cut into flour. This mixture will be very crumply and should look like small peas. This will not look like a normal dough.

Put the mixture in the refrigerator.

Next, the filling!

2 1/2 cups of sliced peaches (canned or fresh)
1/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Pinch of salt

Take 2 1/2 cups of sliced peaches and put in large mixing bowl. This comes out to equal just about one jar of drained peaches but you can also use fresh peaches (about 4).

Sift together 1/4 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and tiny pinch of salt.

Gently fold the sifted mixture into the peaches.

Bringing it together!

Lightly butter a small square brownie pan. When I made these I didn't have a pan so I had to build my own! Thats why mine look a little thinner that yours will be.

Pat down half of the dough so that it is even in the pan.

Spoon the filling over the "crust" evenly.

I usually sprinkle cinnamon over filling but you don't have to do this, we just really love cinnamon (:

Now crumble the rest of the dough on top.

Cook for about 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool for 15 minutes then cut into squares!
