Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars - by Lisa

Once again, I am several days late on writing up my post. :( Somehow the week just got away from me! So without further ado, let me announce that it's peanut butter jelly time!

I decided to make this one Monday evening when I realized I had enough time to throw it together, and my sweet tooth was getting the better of me. :) I had everything I needed since I did all my recipe shopping early in the month - it was just a matter of putting it all together!

This was a really easy one to make, and I can't believe we hadn't done this one earlier in the project! Altho, it is nice to have some yummy ones all the way down to the end. :) The cookie base was a mixture of sugar, butter, egg, flour and creamy peanut butter. I did also include the option peanut butter chips, because who doesn't like more peanut butter?! And I did use store bought jam, because I am uber-possessive of my ever dwindling stash of our homemade strawberry jam.

Before baking
I think these baked for just the right amount of time (about 20-25 min), and we managed to hold off on digging in until they were mostly cool.

Cooling off
I think gobbling them up slightly warm made them even more yummy! These were definitely a hit in the entire household. So easy to make, and a nice alternative to chocolate that few people would turn down!
