Peanut Butter Bars

Here's another Paula Deen adaptation for you. I love anything with Peanut Butter and this simple bar cookie looked delicious. It's a fairly quick and easy recipe to do and the taste is outstanding. I could definitely see this working with some chocolate, either as a drizzled icing or even frosted or layered. I may experiment with this recipe some in the future and see what types of variations with chocolate and peanut butter I can come up with.

As it is, you'll find the peanut butter alone quite wonderful and rich. A note of caution when making this, though. For those of you unused to working with hot ingredients and eggs, remember to let this cool before adding the eggs or make sure you temper your eggs before adding to the hot peanut butter and melted butter. Otherwise you'll end up with scrambled eggs in your peanut butter and somehow I don't see that becoming as popular as Reese's!

So, here we go, Peanut Butter Bars a la Paula Deen...


8 tblsp. butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Melt butter and peanut butter together in bowl over hot water. Add remaining ingredients and stir well until blended. Pour mixture into pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely and cut into squares.
