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.
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!
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups Bisquick mix
1/3 cup strawberry jam or preserves
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In large bowl, beat sugars, peanut butter, shortening and egg with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on medium speed 1 minute, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in Bisquick mix until blended.
Place dough on surgace sprinkled with Bisquick mix;
gently roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Divide dough into 4 parts.
Shape each part into roll 3/4 inch in diameter and about 13 inches long. On large ungreased cookie sheet, place rolls about 2 inches apart.
Make indentation lengthwise in center of each roll with spoon.
Spoon or squeeze jam evenly into indentations.
Bake 9 to 11 minutes until light golden brown and set.
Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes. Cut each roll into 12 slices. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
About 4 dozen cookies.
