Peaches and Cream Bars

I love peaches and I love my peach tree.  I also like to freeze some of my fresh peaches in the summer so that I can use them throughout the colder months. I was looking for something a little different to do with some of my frozen peaches when I found this recipe.  It's perfect!  Fresh peaches are the best choice, but frozen will work just as well.  If using frozen though, make sure after thawing to discard as much as you can of the liquid.
These bars are seriously so amazing!  They are sweet and light, they melt in your mouth and they will really make you happy. :)  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
For crust and topping:
-3 cups flour
-1 1/2 cups sugar
-1/4 tsp salt
-3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) unsalted butter, slightly brought to room temperature (still cold)
For filling:
-4 large eggs
-2 cups sugar
-1 cup sour cream
-3/4 cup flour
-a pinch of salt
-2 lbs fresh peaches, pitted and thinly sliced OR 2 lbs frozen peaches, thawed with juice squeezed out
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.  Coat a 9x13 baking dish with baking spray (the one with flour and butter).  Set aside.
In your electric mixer's bowl, using the paddle attachment, mix the flour, sugar and salt from the crust ingredients.  With the mixer going, add chunks of butter.  Mix until nice and crumbly.
Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the mixture for topping.  Pour the remaining mix into the prepared pan.  Press down with your fingers. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven (do NOT turn off the oven) and let it cool for a few minutes.
While the crust is cooling, in a large bowl, mix the eggs and sugar.  Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour over golden crust.
Sprinkle with the reserved crumbly mixture. Bake in preheated oven for about 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from oven and let it cool completely (about 3-4 hours). Cut into bars and enjoy!
