Peanut Butter Lunch Lady Cookie Bars

Do not take this cookie for granted! The simplicity yet complex flavor of this will make your day complete! This is what I always prepare pretty much 2 times a week. It is something that my kids love! Try eating it with a nice and cold lemon or cucumber juice. I hope this brings a smile on your face. Enjoy!


2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 ½ cup of peanut butter, divided
1 ½ cups or 3 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
½ cup milk + 2 tablespoons, divided
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of salt
4 cups of powdered sugar

How to make Peanut Butter Lunch Lady Cookie Bars

Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Apply cooking spray into a cookie sheet or use a parchment paper.

Step 2: Combine the dry ingredients. Mix sugar, flour, salt, and baking soda then set aside.

Step 3: In a small bowl, add eggs, vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup milk. Whisk until well-mixed.

Step 4: Place a saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to low. Add 1 cup of butter and melt. Add in 1 cup of peanut butter then bring to boil.

Step 5: Turn off the heat and gently add the flour mixture. Next, pour in the egg and milk mixture. Stir until well-mixed.

Step 6: Transfer the batter into the cookie sheet. Evenly spread the batter to the sides.

Step 7: Place the batter inside the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake. If it comes out clean, you are good to go!

Step 8: Place on a wire rack to cool. Once cool, add frosting.

Step 9: For the frosting mixture: Melt 1 cup of butter and add 1/2 cup of peanut butter in a saucepan then bring to boil. Pour 2 tablespoons of milk and gently add the powdered sugar and stir until well-mixed.

Step 10: Spread the frosting over the cookies. Let the frosting cool before serving. Enjoy!
