Peanut Butter Blondies recipe - Splendry

I have had this recipe for so many years and have tweaked it so many times, I don’t even remember the original source. I’ve added everything but the kitchen sink at one time or another, and this version, with its addition of dark chocolate chips (why not?), Reese’s Pieces, and brown sugar is my favorite to date.

  • ¼ cup margarine or butter
  • ¾ cup Crisco (and 7 tsp. Water)
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
  • 2 cups flour (whole wheat or white)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup peanut butter chips or Reese’s Pieces
