Who says peanut butter and jelly is for kids? ....................
............... it's definitely not, especially when it's dressed up this way; a delightful, buttery, crumbly bar with a touch of sophistication - macadamia and white chocolate!
1 stick butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
¾ cup smooth peanut butter
½ teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¾ cup strawberry jam, or other flavor (I used my Strawberry Freezer Jam)
½ cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
½ cup white chocolate chips, roughly chopped
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8x8-inch pan with baking spray and line with foil, leaving a 2 inch overhang. Spray the foil with baking spray and set aside.
