1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 cups frozen sliced peaches, thawed and drained, from two 10-oz bags, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 teaspoons water


Heat oven to 350°F. Line 9-inch square pan with foil, allowing some to hang off edge; spray with cooking spray.

In 2-quart saucepan, heat butter over medium heat 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until butter begins to brown and smells nutty. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes. Transfer to small microwavable bowl.

In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir in 1/3 cup of the flour, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon and 1/4 cup of the browned butter. Press 1 1/4 cups of the dough mixture evenly in bottom of pan to make crust. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown and center is set; cool 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in same 2-quart saucepan, add peaches, remaining 3 tablespoons flour, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, the brown sugar, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the browned butter. Stir until peaches are thoroughly coated. Cook over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Spread cooked peach mixture on top of baked cookie base.

Crumble remaining dough mixture on top of peach layer. Bake 32 to 35 minutes or until dough is set and light golden brown. Cool completely, about 2 hours.
