Peanut Butter Cookie Bars
Makes slightly gooey peanut buttery cookie bars! I make my favorite peanut butter cookies all the time but I wanted to try making peanut butter bars this time. I tweaked my recipe & came up with these bars. They are a little more gooey then my classic peanut butter cookies but just as addicting. I love the peanut butter flavor!
I was worried they would turn out dry and crumbly (not what I was looking for) so I decided to add a little sour cream to keep them from being dry. It seemed to have done the trick because they came out moist & just a little gooey. I sprinkled the top with sugar before baking to give them a little more sweetness.
