Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Line 8x8 baking pan with aluminum foil with enough overhang on the sides for easy removal. Spray foil with nonstick spray.
  3. Make the crust/topping:
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon together until combined.
  5. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry blender or two forks until it reaches coarse, pea-sized crumbs.
  6. Remove 3/4 cup of the mixture, put in a small bowl and mix with pecans. This will be set aside for the topping.
  7. Evenly press the remaining oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes as you prepare the filling.
  8. Make the filling:
  9. Whisk the egg and sugar together until smooth and creamy.
  10. Add the flour and salt. Whisk until combined. Fold in the peaches.
  11. Remove crust from the oven after 15 minutes and pour the filling over hot crust.
  12. Sprinkle with reserved oat/pecan mixture. Bake for 30-32 minutes or until golden brown on top. Allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
  13. Transfer to the refrigerator and allow to chill for 2 hours before cutting into squares.
  14. Make the vanilla glaze:
  15. Using a fork or spoon, whisk/stir the confectioners' sugar, cream, and vanilla extract together until smooth.
  16. Drizzle over each square.
