Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brittle - Warning, quite addictive!

Every year, I enjoy making goodies to give as gifts to teachers, friends, neighbors, and family.  I have my staples - chocolate dipped pretzels and peanut butter crackers - but I like to find new ideas as well.  Cookie Dough Brittle is a recipe A Whisk and A Prayer shares with us on her blog.  And it is very adaptable.  You can use chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, heath pieces, peanut butter chips, etc.  I had several bags of peanut butter chips so that is what I used.  Very easy to make - softened butter, vanilla, sugar, flour, salt and chips.  Mix all together, spread out on parchment paper (I used a large rectangle bar pan from Pampered Chef - LOVE IT!) and bake for 20 minutes.  Leave it out to cool completely.  Break into pieces!  That's it! 
The Big Guy is not as crazy about sweets as he is salty but he took several pieces of this brittle with him as he passed through the kitchen one evening!
