Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars
A simple dessert, that features one of your favorite childhood flavor combinations.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 cup grape jam/jelly
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until whipped and fluffy.
Add in the eggs, extract, and peanut butter-- mixing until evenly incorporated.
Slowly add in the flour and baking powder, mixing consistently until evenly incorporated.
Lightly grease a 9x13" pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread 2/3 of the batter evenly out over the bottom of the pan.
Using a spatula, spread the jam/jelly out over the batter leaving a half inch clean on all sides.
Using a teaspoon, drop the remaining batter/dough evenly out over top of the dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and cooked through.
