Peanut Butter 'n Jelly Bars

Ok! These are a perfect, easy, go-to snack! I can't believe I have never made these.  Try them...soon!
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, melted
1 c brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 c creamy peanut butter
1/3 c of your favorite jelly *I used raspberry*
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray

Melt the butter in a microwave bowl, took mine about 45 seconds. Then add the 1/4 c  peanut butter and heat until melted, about 30 seconds.  Stir until butter and peanut butter are smooth and combined well. Add the brown sugar and stir well. Add the egg and vanilla and stir again.  Add the flour and salt and stir only to combine, don't go to town on the stirring here or they will be tough. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smooth it so it is even in the pan. To the top of the batter add 1/3 c peanut butter in dollops all around the pan. Do the same thing with the 1/3 c jelly and then use a knife to marble the topping, not a lot though.  You want it pretty not gross looking. Bake for 27 minutes, about. Dn't over bake, so watch it about the last 3 minutes. Cool and eat! Seriously yummy snack! Enjoy~
