Thursday Recipe - Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

These really hit the spot, not too sweet but plenty for a tasty treat. And the frosting? It was really good, enough that now I want to figure out how to make peanut butter twinkies with it as the filling.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/4 c. honey
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 eggs
4 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. jelly

Cream butter and peanut butter with sugars. Add baking powder, salt, and eggs. Beat until very creamy. Stir in oatmeal. Spread in a greased 9x13 baking pan. Spoon jelly over the top. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Let cool.

Top with peanut butter frosting.

Peanut Butter Frosting

2 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. shortening
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 T. milk

On very low speed, cream powdered sugar, shortening, and peanut butter. Add milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the frosting is light and fluffy.

Top bars with frosting and serve.
