Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Whisper

I got this recipe from a friend of mine. These cookies are delicious! As with any bar cookie, they are easier to make than drop cookies. I love these with a glass of milk. Although any flavor jelly can be used, grape is my favorite!

Very good tasting with good texture as well! My entire family said,"This deserves a 5", with the exception of my hubby of course. He took an outside edge that was a little more crunchy, and with no teeth had a few problems! LOL
