In a large bowl cream the butter and the powdered sugar until light and fluffy.

Gradually add 1 cup of the flour and the salt and mix until well blended.

Press into a greased (I used non-stick baking spray), 8" square baking dish and bake at 350° F for about 18 - 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining flour and the baking powder.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and the brown sugar until blended.

Beat in the vanilla extract.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg mixture.

Stir in the prepared peach chunks and the *chopped walnuts.

Pour evenly over the crust in the baking dish.

Bake at 350 ° F for about 30 minutes or until set.

Remove from oven, and allow to cool.

If desired (optional), drizzle melted chocolate over top.

Cut into squares and enjoy!

Freezing Bars Tip - I froze some of these peach bars to enjoy later.

If you wish to freeze some, either wrap them individually in clear plastic wrap or freeze them in a sealed container. When you remove them you will find they taste like fresh!
