Thanks Paula for replying .. I'm not giving up on these bars just yet. Maybe next time I'll try using a few less peaches to see if that helps firm them up. Btw, I had allowed the bars to cool in the fridge for a couple of hrs. These bars are so yummy that I'm determined to get them just right! Thx.

I'm not sure what happened, Sheila, I haven't heard of this happening before, but you know how baking is-very very finicky. Even the weather can mess up a great cook's plans. I'm thinking you did chill them before you cut them. I put at least 30 minutes, and I've served them after 30 min. of chill time. Maybe chill a couple of hours to firm everything up on the bottom (sounds funny)!

These bars are so tasty and easy to make. Took them to a family dinner yesterday and everyone commented on how good they were. Just wondering what I might have done wrong though b/c when it came time to serve mine they were very crumbly and messy. It almost seemed like the bottom was too soft and couldn't support the top layers. Any suggestions?
