This was meant for Tuesday, but in real life fashion, it didn’t happen until today, but better late than never, so here goes!
This weekend I followed this advice and made these:
Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars
Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars
1 stick of butter, at room temperature
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 extra-large egg
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup of raspberry jam or other jam (I used raspberry, but next time I am going to use strawberry, I think that it will be better)
In a mixer, cream together butter and sugar for 2 minutes. Add vanilla, egg and peanut butter. Mix until well incorporated. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix together on low, just until incorporated.
Grease a 9×9 pan. Put 2/3 of the mixture in and press it into the bottom. Spread the jam over the dough layer. Crumble the remaining mixture over the jam layer.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let it cool for 20 minutes before cutting to let the jam set.
