Condensed milk and creamy peanut butter are combined in these easy-to-make, super rich, sweet-and-salty bar cookies
Golden Sun Oven Peanut Butter Bar Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
1 cup peanuts, finely chopped
1 can (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup creamy all-natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Set Sun Oven out to preheat.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and egg. Cut in the cold butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the peanuts. Set aside 2 cups of the flour mixture. Press the remaining mixture into a baking pan. Bake the crust in the Sun Oven until lightly browned, 30 to 4o minutes. While the crust is baking, beat together the condensed milk, peanut butter, and vanilla extract in another large bowl. Remove the crust from the Sun Oven (leave the oven out) and spread the milk mixture evenly over it. Sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture on top. Return the pan to the Sun Oven and bake and additional 40 minutes to 1 hour. Cool in pan on a rack. Cut into bars when cool.
