Serves 24 Bars | Prep Time 25-30 minutes | Cook Time 18-20 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 1/2 cups chopped peanuts


Preheat the oven to 325 F


Lightly grease a 9x13 inch, 11x11 inch, or similar-sized pan.


In a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.


Add the egg and vanilla, mixing to combine


In a separate, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and the cinnamon, if desired


Stir into the creamed mixture.


Mix in 1 cup of the peanuts


Spread the batter in the prepared pan


The batter will be stiff and barely cover the bottom of the pan


An offset icing spatula (or using wet fingers) is helpful in spreading it around.


Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of nuts on the top


Spray a piece of plastic wrap with nonstick spray


Cover the batter with it


Press the nuts down into the dough through the plastic


Peel off the wrap


Bake the bars for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the dough pulls away from the edge of the pan


Remove from the oven


Cut into squares or diamonds while still warm


Allow the bars to cool completely before removing them from the pan
