Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies Bars

When I opened my fridge Saturday afternoon to see what I could find to make for Sunday school this week, I found two rolls peanut butter cookie dough that were very near their “use by date.” Doing a quick Google search for a recipe that would work with ingredients I had on hand, I found this one on Pillsbury’s site. With a little tweaking to accommodate the ingredients I had in the pantry, I came up with Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Bars!
Don't be afraid to play around with recipes! You never know what delight dish you might create. Even if you flop, as I so often do, you'll learn something from trying - even if it is just what not to do!

It's like peanut butter and chocolate. Each is great, but they're better together.
