Peanut Butter Bars

Yield: 24 bars

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 envelope (1/4 ounce or 2 1/4 tsp) FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 egg, large
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1 (10-ounce) package peanut butter chips, melted
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup chopped peanuts
1/3 cup sugar

Powdered Sugar Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm (120 to 130 deg. F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg, 1/4 cup peanuts, and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Turn into greased 13 x 9-inch pan. Combine melted peanut butter chips and remaining butter; spread evenly over batter. Sprinkle with remaining peanuts and sugar. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake at 375 deg. F for 15 minutes or until done. Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Glaze. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into 24 bars (4 x 6).
