Peanut Butter Bars for Jelly Roll Pan

These were delicious!  They are easy to make and I like that they make a big batch.
Peanut Butter Bars for Jelly Roll Pan

For the Cookie Layer:

1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp milk
1 1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp baking soda

For the Middle Layer:

1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 bag (10oz) peanut butter morsels

For the Topping: 
1 bag (14oz) Reese's pieces
1 bag (8oz) Reese's MINI peanut butter cups Beth used full sized and cut into 1/4's

1. For the cookie, beat Crisco with peanut butter, milk and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in egg. Add flour, salt and baking soda, mix until thoroughly combined.

2. Press cookie dough into a lightly greased 15x10 baking sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 18-22 minutes, until browned. Remove.

3. While baking, heat condensed milk with butter over low heat until warmed. Remove from heat, whisk in peanut butter morsels and stir until melted. Pour over warm cookie layer. Immediately press candies into top layer. Allow to set, about one hour.  Slice and serve.
