Rosalee's Peanut Butter Bars

Rosalee's Peanut Butter Bars

  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 c. oats
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Mix butter, sugars, eggs until fluffy. Add peanut butter mix until creamy. Add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and vanilla. Mix it all up.
Lightly grease a 12x18 jelly roll pan (jelly roll pan? you mean a cookie sheet with 1 inch edges. i'm so unleanred). Spread with a rolling pin until even in the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Cool for 20-30 minutes.
Spread 1 cup peanut butter over the top.
Melt chocolate chips and spread over the peanut butter. The peanut butter and chocolate will mix up a bit - so so yummy!

Betty gets all the credit for these fajitas.

(but I did change a few things...of course.)

This was the second real meal I made for my husband after we were married. 2 1/2 years after we were married. I've come a long way.

I doubled the marinade. I used 2.5 lbs of chicken instead of beef. I cut the chicken into strips before marinating for 3 hours. I replaced the onion with an orange pepper. I sauteed the peppers for 3 minutes in my huge skillet, then added the chicken and marinade and cooked it in the skillet it with the peppers for 7 minutes. I just warm my tortillas in the microwave. And I forgot the sour cream, which is sad because these taste so good with sour cream. Oh, wow. Maybe I should've rewritten the recipe... If I get a comment saying this is too tricky to follow, I will.

I will never write a cookbook

Ya know when you've made a meal a few times and you just know what to do and then you try and write it down for someone else and they call you and they're like "hello, this recipe doesn't make sense" and you feel kinda sheepish?

I do.

I rewrote the Mommie's Corn Chowder.

Sorry (Liz).:)
