Peanut Butter 'n' Jelly Bars Recipe

My two young sons are crazy about these simple, fast cookie bars. And as a busy mom, easy preparation makes this one scrumptious dessert I can rely on—even at the last minute. You might want to vary the jam or jelly to suit your own family’s tastes. —Carolyn Mulloy, Davison, Michigan
