P B and J Bars

My sweet tooth has been nagging at me all day but honestly I wasn't in the mood to make anything, so I kept putting it off and putting it off until about 30 minutes ago.....I couldn't anymore, I really wanted something sweet, so out came the PB and J Bars.

P B and J Bars

Pretty simple to put together and if your kids or you, like Peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches, then you'll really enjoy these.

Just wish there was a recipe to keep the children away from these bars before they inhale them all in 10 minutes.  Yikes!

I made half with strawberry jam and half with my homemade tomato and apple jam.  Yum!

  4. As I can't get bisquick mix here in the UK, I made these with my biscuit mixture and did them as round biscuits with a dent in the middle for the jam. They are delicious and the 12 of them have all gone in the same day! Thank you for some amazing recipes, and for the inspiration to try new things ;-)
