Hawaii Mom Blog: Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

There's a bakery in town that makes these peanut butter and jelly bars that are to-die-for. As I was eating one at my desk one day, I thought to myself "I could save so much money if I made these at home - it can't be that difficult".  So I scanned the internet and found a recipe that looked very similar to what I was eating (judging by the photo on the recipe's page).  I tested out the recipe at home and it turned out to be almost identical to the one I buy at my favorite bakery in town.  If you like peanut butter and jelly as much as I do, you'll want to bookmark this link and try this recipe at home: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/peanut-butter-and-jelly-bars

Here's what you'll need:
Baking Powder
Peanut Butter
Brown Sugar
Vanilla Extract
Salted Dry Roasted Peanuts (Optional)

You'll need two bowls (one for your wet ingredients, one for dry ingredients), an electric mixer, and 8x8 baking pan lined with foil.  Half of the dough will be used for the bottom crust.  The other half will be used for the topping. Bake time = 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Yields 16 squares.
