So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Meal

The Chick spent this weekend at Spring Retreat. It's a youth group event that pulls the teens away to the currently empty Bible camp we frequent as a congregation. They spend the time focusing on devotionals and time together.

Each year the woman who is responsible for their meals requests that members of the congregation bring homemade cookies for her to take up for them. The Chick and I wanted to provide some (as usual) but this year I wanted something besides the old standard Chocolate Chip.

This is what we found. They were very good. So good, in fact, that the Chick never got a single one at the retreat. They were set out and disappeared before she even knew they were available. Fortunately, she got to try one of the first ones from the oven or she might have already been begging me to make them again.

Some commenters at the recipe site suggested adding slivered almonds to the chips on top but I think they are good the way they are. Enjoy.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place butter/margarine in pats in a 13x9 pan. Place pan in oven to melt butter/margarine.
Once melted, remove pan from oven. Mix together graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Sprinkle over melted butter/margarine. Using a fork, turn crumbs such that all are moistened. Press onto bottom of pan.
Pour sweetened condensed milk over crumbs. Sprinkle chocolate chips and peanut butter chips over milk and press lightly.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into bars.
