I pinched this from My Recipes Daily Indulgence. Hubby loves Peanut Butter & Jelly and this hit the spot!
I used Dry Roasted Peanuts and pulsed them lightly in my mini food processor.
I didn't have unsalted butter, so I used salted and left out the salt in the recipe.
You could use any sort of preserves that you like.
Enjoy!

How to Make Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter and lightly flour a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
  2. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Lower speed, add egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. On low speed, slowly add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture. Mix until combined. Set aside 1/2 cup of dough.
