Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars
slightly adapted from Julie's Eats & Treats
- 1 c butter, at room temperature
- 1 1/2 c sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 c creamy (or chunky) peanut butter
- 3 c all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 c jelly (I went with traditional grape :) )*you can use jam
Cream together butter & sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla & peanut butter. Mix until combined.
Add flour & baking powder. Mix until well combined.
Spread 2/3 of the batter mixture onto the bottom of the pan. Spread jam over the batter. Leave about 1/2" around the sides without jam. Drop the remaining dough over the jam, in about teaspoon size drops.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes until the edges start to brown. Remove from from oven.
