    Lparmoc's Note:

    From the Pillsbury 7th Grand National contest-winners cookbook: "Peanut butter and chocolate layers on a butterscotch cookie base--a rich, candy-like bar cookie." Mrs. Ernest P. Fletcher won for this recipe. It is indeed dreamy, a heavenly combination of semi-sweet chocolate, creamy peanut butter, and buttery deliciousness!

      These are a fabulous rich little bar/brownie. I can see why they won the Pillbury Bake-off. The only thing I omited from your recipe directions was the peanuts. Purely family preference (not mine). Thanks alot for sharing this recipe!~
