Here in the Test Kitchen, we're always looking for
ways to change up of our most popular taste combos.
Well, today we're taking two of everyone's favorites
and turning them into a bar cookie that is not only
kid-friendly and easy it's amazing.
We start by combining flour, a stick of melted butter,
some peanut butter, light brown and granulated sugar
and an egg.
We'll beat this until it comes together but it's still
going to be a bit crumbly.
Ok, we spread all but a cup of this over the bottom
of a 9 x 13 pan and press it down real firmly to make
Over that we spread some jelly.
Here, I'm using strawberry, but feel free to use whatever
you have on hand or what's on sale.
On top of that, we crumble the rest of the crust mixture.
You want it so you can see some of the jelly peaking
Once it's baked off, we'll let it cool and it will
be ready to cut into bars.
Do they look good or what? And when your family tries
these, they're going to think you're a genius.
It's ok with me if you take all the credit.
But first, you'll have to go online to get our recipe
for PB & J Bars, so you'll have it on hand whenever
you need something every day special.
And are these ever perfect as an after-school snack.

an easier way for you to say OOH IT'S SO GOOD
