Peanut Butter Blondies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Johnsdeere

I found this recipe in the October 09' Family Circle. The peanut flavor in this bar cookie is perfect thanks to the cookie and frosting combination. I'm not a huge peanut butter "cookie" fan however I think these are delicious. Give these a shot, you won't be sorry. *Please note these make two 13x9 pans of cookies, including frosting.

Excellent! These taste like a peanut butter cookie with peanut butter frosting. I would also love this frosting on a cake or brownies. Cooking time was a little long as I had to pull these out earlier to avoid burning. I made a half a batch (with 2 eggs). Made these for Father's Day because he can't have chocolate. Will be making these again for picnics, potlucks and parties. Thanks for sharing.
