I was inspired to make these bars by a photo I saw of Ina Garten’s recipe for peanut butter and jelly bars. In her recipe, she uses a peanut butter shortbread and strawberry jam, but I instead, simply decided to use my own favorite peanut butter cookie dough, and concord grape jelly. These ooey, gooey, chewy bars do not disappoint, bringing back all of the flavors and the nostalgia of a childhood favorite. Here I pressed a layer of peanut butter cookie dough into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan, topped it with a generous layer of grape jelly, and then crumbled another layer of cookie dough over the top, and finished it all off (as Ina does) with a sprinkling of chopped salted peanuts. I baked it for forty five minutes in a 350° oven, and once they were cooled, sliced them into squares. These would be perfect for a picnic or potluck, and they are certain to be a hit with children, or even just the child in you. Enjoy!
