Jill's Peanut Butter Cookie Bars (People's choice winner at the 2010 cookie fest)
So Jill brought the best cookie this year.
I know why... that peanut butter and chocolate combination just can't be beat!
I baked up a batch of these this afternoon. They will certainly go on my list of treats to take to picnics and pot lucks.
Jill's Peanut Butter Cookie Bars
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup creamy PB
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
Cream together butter and sugars. Add PB and eggs. Beat until smooth. Add vanilla, soda, salt, oats and flour and press into a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 375. Place chocolate chips over hot bars and melt in oven for a few minutes. With a knife smooth out chocolate chips. Allow to cool completely.
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup softened butter
1 - 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (add until it's at a desired consistency...I used 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 T milk
Mix all ingredients together and spread over cooled bars.
To add some color, I grated a little semi-sweet chocolate over the top.
These are best if served completely cooled.
