Two flavors make one tasty bar

By on December 18, 2012

Day Five of the annual Rosiethon finds Rosie combining two of her favorite flavors to make Peanut Butter Coconut Bars.

Peanut Butter Coconut Bars
1 ½ sticks butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
2 cups flour
2 cups coconut
½ cup chopped peanuts.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add peanut butter.
Beat in egg, vanilla, and salt.
Slowly, beat in flour.
Stir in coconut.
Press evenly into a greased 10 ½ x 15 ½ pan.

I use a sheet of plastic wrap on top of the mixture and roll it out with a mini-rolling pin.

Sprinkle peanuts over top and press in.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until nicely tanned.
Cool on racks.
Cut into squares or bars.

Last year on Day 5 of the Rosiethon, I made Buckeyes for our Outer Banks Voice readers.
