Peach Crumble Bars

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! Here's a picture of me and my sister with our Mom yesterday! We surprised her and took her to a vineyard for some wine tasting on Mother's Day. The drive there was pretty silly because every 5 minutes she'd be like "are we going to this place? are we going there?" She took almost 40 minutes to guess it after saying St. Mary's, multiple different craft fairs, Calvert Cliffs, a plantation... we just told her to give up. At least I'm pretty sure she had a good time! 
Onto the food. That's the whole point of this site anyway. Peach Crumble Bars. Slightly like peach pie but better. I made these for my Dad's birthday last week but they're just making it up here. I kind of had a stockpile of recipes but it's starting to get depleted! Guess I need to start making more food!

Peach Crumble Bars
Yield ~25 squares

Bottom Layer
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch salt

2 tablespoons butter, melted
~4 peaches, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Top Layer
1 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together, then mix in the flour cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl. Grease 9x9 pan and press mixture down into the bottom as seen below. Place in oven for 15 minutes to pre bake. Then mix together the melted butter, peaches, brown sugar, and cinnamon and pour on top of the slightly baked bottom after you take it it out of the oven. In another bowl mix the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and baking soda together. Add in the butter and rub it into the dry mixture with your fingers until crumbly. Spread the crumbly mixture out on top and lightly press down. Don't press hard so that you still have a crumbly appearance. Bake for about 35 minutes at 350 degrees or until the top starts to brown a little.
