Cookie Cookbook Class & Contest.....


Two weeks ago we held our Christmas Cookbook Class
where we complied all of our Christmas Open House Cookie Recipes
& had guests make their own cookbook.....

 With delicious cookies like these:

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Revel Bars

Crust:
Nonstick cooking spray ½ teaspoon salt
1cup butter, softened 2 cups peanut butter
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar 2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with heavy foil, extending the foil over edges of pan. Coat foil with cooking spray; set pan aside.

In an extra-large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in the 2 cups peanut butter, the eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Set dough aside.

Filling:
2 teaspoons vanilla 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter or butter
3 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate pieces ½ cups chopped salted peanuts (optional)
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

For filling, in a medium saucepan combine chocolate pieces, sweetened condensed milk, and the 2 tablespoons peanut butter. Cook over low heat until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla

Remove 2 cups of the dough; set aside. Press the remaining dough evenly onto the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Spread filling evenly over dough in pan. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining dough over the filling.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until top is light brown. If desired, sprinkle with peanuts. Cool in pan on wire rack. Using the edges of the foil, lift block of cookies out of pan. Place on a cutting board; cut into bars.

Makes 36 bars
