Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Bars are bar cookies made with Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix. They have a base layer of peanut butter cookie, layers of fudge and peanut butter cream, and a crumbly topping. Here’s a link to the recipe. It’s been a while since I made these, but I remember them as being very good. Will update next time I make them.
Oh drat. I was all set to make these, had even checked to see that I had all the ingredients and didn’t need to go to the store. After mixing the peanut butter cookie mix with 1 T. of water and 3 T. of oil, I thought that the dough was certainly sticky and thin. Oops. The PB Cookie Mix was snack size instead of regular. Darn!
So now I either try to salvage what I started or start from scratch? If I do made-from-scratch PB cookies, I’m not going to want them as “atmosphere.”
Another cooking disaster…
Lisa, I don’t see why a homemade cookie dough wouldn’t work. I will say this — this was a recipe where the filling and topping were the star and the mix-based cookie dough was just “atmosphere”. But I can understand wanting to do it from scratch, so let me know if you do.
Anna, these look wonderful and I love chocolate and peanut butter together! Generally I don’t use cookie mixes, though. Do you think the recipe would work if I used a basic peanut butter cookie recipe for the bottom layer?
What can I say? I’m crazy.
Tune in tomorrow because I’m baking a key lime pie which requires minimal baking.
It’s 92 F. in Cleveland. My kitchen is not airconditioned. And, you want me to bake!!!
