Description

Everyone loves a good Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich. Everyone will love these sweet treats as well!

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks Butter, Room Temperature
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 cups Peanut Butter, Creamy Or Chunky
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1-½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1-½ cup Raspberry Jam (or Jam Of Your Choice)
  • ⅔ cups Salted Peanuts, Coarsely Chopped

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper; grease and flour the parchment paper.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light yellow. Beat in vanilla, eggs, and peanut butter on low speed until everything is combined.

In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture. Mix just until combined.

Spread half of the dough in the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread jam evenly over the top of the dough. Use your hands to make large balls of dough with the remaining half of dough, then flatten them out and place them over the jam. The dough will spread a bit in the oven, so it’s okay if there are bare spots. Sprinkle with the chopped peanuts and bake for 45 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.

Isn’t this Ina Garten’s recipe? Also it looks like a recipe from the blog: Mybakingaddiction

Can’t wait to try these! I’ve wanted to make them ever since I saw them on Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten is a cooking goddess in my book).
