So it comes as no surprise that my favorite "go to" recipe would be an easy bar cookie, made with my two favorite ingredients - chocolate and peanut butter. These little gems are easy to make. They don't take an outrageous amount of ingredients either, all of which I always seem to have on hand.
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups chocolate chips, divided
Beat granulated sugar, peanut butter, butter and vanilla in large mixer bowl until creamy.
Beat in egg.
Gradually beat in flour mixture.
Stir in 1 1/4 cups morsels.
Sprinkle with remaining morsels; press down slightly.
Bake in preheated 350 oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until center is set.
Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Chill for a few minutes. Cut into bars. Makes 3 dozen bars.
It's just that easy!
