Peanut Butter Blondies

I attend a wicked fun monthly event in my city called Brews & Board Games. Last month, the host wanted to raise money for the Baltimore Child Abuse Center through a raffle, silent auction, and bake sale. I made these rich peanut butter blondies for the occasion. This recipe makes 9-12 bars and is adapted from a recipe by Gal on a Mission. Oh, and if you make this recipe and like it, consider donating a few bucks to the Baltimore Child Abuse Center!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
One (1) cup of light brown sugar
One (1) cup of all-purpose flour
One (1) large egg
One (1) teaspoon of vanilla extrac

1/2 cup of peanut butter -- I used smooth, but crunchy would give it a great texture
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together brown sugar, melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, and peanut butter until completely blended.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and salt.
Slowly incorporate - by alternating adding and mixing - the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until completely mixed together.
Spoon batter into a greased 8x8" baking pan.

Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until completely baked through.
Cut, serve, and enjoy!
