Input From Fellow Bakers Needed

I'd like to make a layered bar cookie using peanut butter dough for the base-- no graham crackers in the house and the car's up on blocks! Has anyone attempted this before and with what results? I'd like to do this before the heat wave kicks in tomorrow, all replies are much appreciated!!!

  1. KS, I'm not reading your OP clearly. What do grahams have to do with the PB dough? What else do you have in the pantry to use with the PB?

      The graham cracker and melted butter crust typically associated with 7 layer bars. I do have some oatmeal kicking around, and the usual cast of characters--nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, also some chopped dates that I'm thinking of adding...other than that the pantry is pretty bare!

        Thanks, I'll keep that in mind for some future baking adventure! Today is just bare bones but with a powerful hankering for some sweetness in my life...


        Another idea is this cookie sandwich (instead of a bar) and you could make a PB filling.

          Both contenders, I especially like the first one, thank you!

        2. The recipe for "buckeyes" uses peanut butter mixed with powdered sugar to make a dough that you roll into balls. Seems like a bar-shaped buckeye would be just as do-able.

          1. I have to admit that I'm kind of a lazy bee today and am waiting for my coffee to kick in before attempting anything at all, though now I have some additional ideas swirling through my brain fog.

            Thanks for your help! :)
