This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for the rich, creamy, and crunchy PB&J Bars. My brother, who is known to smear peanut butter on *almost* everything, loved these. And, my step-father reserved a batch for his birthday (in August). I think you’re getting the idea…these are good…really good!
The shortbread crust is topped with a light and fluffy peanut butter layer that’s like fudge. Then, it’s smeared with concord grape jelly and coated with an oat crumble topping. Next time, I would melt the jelly to spread it more evenly. I also have to say I would be very tempted to replace the jelly with melted semi-sweet chocolate!
These were a little time-consuming, but not at all difficult to make.
