Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Bar cookie recipe #2 for today, this is one of those recipes that I’ve had for so long that I can’t remember where it came from.

1 cup butter, softened

2 eggs, slightly beaten

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 cups flour (I ended up using 2 1/2 cups this time)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter, eggs and vanilla until smooth.  Blend in peanut butter then add sugars, flour, soda and salt (here’s where you can tell if you need that additional 1/2 cup flour, my batter was still a little sticky so I added that little extra in) then stir in chips by hand.  Spread batter evenly in a lightly greased 9 x 13″ pan.  Bake 30 – 35 minutes or until lightly browned.
