Peanut Butter Bars

from Fat Witch Brownies: Brownies, Blondies, and Bars from New York's Legendary Fat Witch Bakery by Patricia Helding with Bryna Levin

2 large eggs
1cup granulated sugar
1/2cup packed light brown sugar
1/2cup chunky p.butter
1tsp pure vanilla extract
2tbsp unsalted butter, room temp
1 1/4cups unbleached flour
1tsp baking powder
1/2tsp salt
1/2 cup chips (optional) I used a mix of semi sweet chocolate and p.butter

Grease 9x9 inch pan w/butter and dust w/flour
Preheat to 350*F
Beat eggs and both sugars until smooth, Add p.butter mix, Beat in vanilla and butter mix thoroughly.
Measure flour, b.powder, salt and sift together directly into the batter mix gently (although I don't know why the author tells you that as it's a very heavy batter and it's hard to mix any other way but gently when doing it by hand!)
Fold in chips
Spread in pan as evenly as possible Bake for 25 mins or until toothpick comes out clean!
1hr to cool
And obviously adjust time depending on your pan!!

before going in the oven
I love peanut butter!! Here in England, in my experience, I have not met a lot of people who like Peanut Butter. I guess I need to be careful what I say because I don't really remember asking people in America on their opinion of Peanut Butter- I just assumed everyone loved it!
I happened to make a friend who likes PB as much as me! It's a good thing too otherwise I'd eat all of these myself. The said friend's birthday was last Sunday so I made her a batch of these! The pictures are from a previous batch with just chocolate chips, but I made hers with a mix of chocolate and pb chips. If you are a PB lover or know one this is a must have recipe. I also have a lot to say about the Fat Witch Brownie book but that will be another post! :0)

Note: I sometimes am in a rush when copying down recipes and I sometimes feel they are wordy so this is my less wordy directions. If you have any questions about the directions please ask!
