Peanut Butter Brownies
Source: Domino's Sugar and CLBB
My notes: I doubled the recipe - this one uses a 9x13-inch pan.
1 cup peanut butter -- not natural PB
1/2 cup butter -- at room temperature
2 1/2 cups Domino Demerara Washed Raw Sugar (I used Hain Turbinado)
3 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips or chunks, to taste -- optional
4 tablespoons Domino Demerara Washed Raw Sugar -- for topping (I did not double this and thought it was plenty of sugar on top)
Preheat oven to 350.
Line a 9x13 pan with release foil (I use parchment paper) or grease the pan.
Cream peanut butter, butter, and sugar until light in color. Add eggs and blend to combine. Add vanilla and blend well.
In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, soda, and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture and blend until just combined. Stir in chips, if using.
Scoop batter into prepared pan and smooth it out. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons demerara over the top. Bake 28-30 minutes. Brownies will sink slightly in the center while cooling. Cool completely before cutting.
