Peachy Keen Bars

These peachy keen bars were a hit last night. Everyone that I had over really liked them. I used apple pie filling because I’m trying to use up all the jars that I canned last year. This is a good recipe to get rid of that with. You can use whatever fruit filling for pies you like with these. The crust  is ust a cake mix with butter and eggs and there’s cream cheese underneath that layer. So good. I highly recommend these the next time you have some kind of Fall get together to go too.

I bought some dulce de leche sauce awhile ago from Stone Wall Kitchen and drizzeled some of that over the bars. I think the sauce is starting to go bad, because all I could taste were chunks of salt in the caramel.  Dollop these bars with some some cool whip or whipping cream.
