Every month we bring you recipes showcasing our fruit and the many ways it can be used in both sweet and savory applications. While we’re not the most kitchen savvy people–everyone can cook with fruit, it’s simple–we like to think we put up some decent work. But imagine what a professional could do, given some time, fruit, and a little encouragement? Well, wonder no more as this week we’ve brought in our guest blogger Lauren Brennan (of Lauren’s Latest) to prepare a few pomegranate themed dishes this week.
To make the bars:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whip butter and peanut butter together until smooth. Stir in sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla. Slowly incorporate all dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of a greased 8×8 square pan. Top with cooled pomegranate jelly. Break up remaining 1/3 of peanut butter dough into small pieces and sprinkle evenly to top the bars. Bake for 35 minutes or until top has browned lightly. Remove and cool completely before serving.
