Pizza cookies are a fun, colorful dish found often in Amish kitchens. But when I visited a little Amish bakery in Oakland, Maryland recently (more about the bakery soon) I was intrigued with a “bar version” of the cookies. It just makes for a bit easier process than cookies. What is pictured here is a “miniature version” of a larger recipe, which I’ll post below. These are some awesome bars I ate too many of them on my drive back in Ohio. Yum!
Serves: 24 bars
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- ½ stick butter
- 1 egg
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1½ cups flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter together.
- Add the egg and mix in well.
- Mix in the peanut butter and vanilla.
- Add the flour and mix well.
- Press or roll dough onto a 15-inch pizza pan, going all the way to the edge of the pan or simply press into a 9 X 13 baking dish..
- Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chips and marshmallows over the top.
- Return to the oven for 5 to 8 minutes until topping starts to melt.
- Cut when completely cooled.
