Cookies.When you're more or less living in lockdown (as we're all doing right now due to the pandemic), sometimes you just need some cookies!
And personally, I can't get enough of these peanut butter and chocolate creations - and the recipe is super simple so ... well, let's just say I've been making them a little too often!
So, for those of you who've been asking as well as those of you who didn't know to ask, here is the recipe:
Peanut Butter Bar Cookies with Chocolate Topping
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup Demerara sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
Stir everything together with a wooden spoon until well combined. Spread out in a large pan (9x13 or so). It will be relatively thin and that's all good.
Bake at 180 C for 20-22 minutes. Turn off oven.
1 bar bittersweet chocolate. If you want it extra chocolate-y, use 2 bars. You could totally do this with milk chocolate if you prefer, but I like to keep my baking pareve (dairy allergy!)!
Break the bar up and put it on top of the baked cookie layer (uncut). Return the pan to your still-warm (but off) oven. Leave it in the warm oven for about 8-10 min. Remove from oven when the chocolate is warm and spreadable. Use a silicone spatula to spread the chocolate evenly on top of the cookie layer. Allow to cool slightly before cutting into cookie bars.
Cool further before you eat them.
