  • Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan; then dust the pan with flour.
  • In a large electric mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light yellow, approximately 2 minutes.
  • Turn mixer on low; add vanilla, eggs, and peanut butter, and mix until all of the ingredients are combined.
  • In a medium bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture. Mix just until combined.
  • Spread 2/3 of the dough into the baking pan.
  • Spread the jam evenly over the dough.
  • Drop small mounds of the remaining dough evenly over the jam. Note: the jam doesn't have to be completely covered, because it will even out during baking.
  • Sprinkle the top with chopped peanuts and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown.
  • Let cool and cut into squares.

    "I made these with strawberry jam rather than raspberry. I thought they really had that peanut butter and jelly sandwich taste to them. Our kids liked them so I will be making them again."
