Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I made these just the other day and they turned out really good.  Soft and chewy - peanut buttery and chocolaty. : ) 

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the corn syrup, water, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread cookie dough evenly in a 9x13" baking dish.  (For cookie variation - Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.)
3. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and when no longer gooey in the middle.  Cool before cutting.  (For cookie variation - Bake for 12 to 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.)

Enjoy! - Let me know if you try them & if you like them! :)
