Preheat oven to 375-degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil and apply nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, mix butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Add the vanilla. Slowly mix in the flour. Set aside about 1 cup of the dough, and firmly press the rest into the prepared pan.
Using the same bowl, make the filling. Beat together the eggs, peanut butter, and two sugars. Spread this over the unbaked crust. Sprinkle the reserved dough over the top.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the dough it set and golden. Cool completely in pan. Slice into bars. The bars may be crumbly, especially the edge pieces, but every bit is delicious. Keeps for at least 3 days in a sealed container.
