Mr. Food Recipe Of The Day: PB & J Bars

September 3, 2014 Updated Sep 3, 2014 at 8:29 AM EDT

Kids like PB & J, right? They also love cookies, so imagine if you married those. We did, and the results are guaranteed to create lots of smiles at your house.

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.

We've got lots of other bar cookie recipes on our website, so check 'em out! A favorite around here is our Chocolate Caramel Pecan Squares!
