How to Make Peach Pie Bars

Add together your butter, sugar, and salt until it is fluffy. One at a time add in your eggs and beat lightly after each one. Pour in the extracts and mix well.
Put 3 cups of the mixture in the pan and evenly spread to the sides.
For 15 minutes, you want to prebake your ingredients. Then, take out.
At medium speed, add together your cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Pour this mixture over the crust.
Mix together the corn starch and sugar. Add in peach juice. Gently add in the peaches and fold into this mixture. Pour peach mixture on top of the cream cheese mix.
Using a spoon add a few spoonfuls of the leftover dough mixture across the top of the peaches.
