What You'll Need
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup strawberry jelly (see Options)
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except jelly. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, or until blended and crumbly.
- Reserve 1 cup of peanut butter mixture. Spread remaining peanut butter mixture over bottom of baking dish. Spread jelly evenly over mixture and crumble reserved peanut butter mixture over top.
- Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until topping is golden. Allow to cool completely, then cut into bars and serve.
- Sure, if strawberry isn't your favorite, you can use another flavor of jam or preserves in place of the strawberry jelly.
