Peanut Butter {and Peanut Butter Cup} and Jelly Bars
  • 1 stick butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups jam (I used blueberry)
  • ⅔ cups chopped peanuts
  • ⅔ cups chopped peanut butter cups
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Lower speed and add egg, vanilla and peanut butter. Beat until combined.
  3. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add to the peanut butter mixture; mix until just combined. Set aside ½ cup dough.
  4. Press remaining dough into the bottom of your prepared pan. Use your fingers--it's fun!
  5. Spread jam over the dough. Crumbled reserved dough on top, and sprinkle with peanuts and peanut butter cups.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden and bubbling.
