1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. granulated sugar
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 c. grape jelly
1 (10 oz.) pkg. peanut butter-flavored chips (1 2/3 c.)
Grease a 9x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside.
In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, and baking powder; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg; mix well.
Remove and reserve half of the crumb mixture (about 1 1/2 c.). Press remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
Spread jelly evenly over the crust. Sprinkle with 1 c. peanut butter chips.
Stir together the reserved crumb mixture and the remaining peanut butter chips; sprinkle over over top, pressing lightly.
Bake @ 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Makes 18 bars.
