One year, for my birthday, my grandma gave me this:
A recipe box filled with her favorite handwritten recipes.
It is still a gift I treasure. Many of her favorite recipes have become my favorites too!
One of my most requested recipes is one I got from Grandma, peanut butter bars! These are so good, and simple to make!
Peanut Butter Bars
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter (I like chunky)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup peanut butter, whipped (I like creamy)
16 oz tub chocolate frosting
Mix first eight ingredients. Then add all the flour and oats. Mix well.
Spread onto a 10x15 cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until edges are beginning to brown.
Remove from oven and spread whipped peanut butter on hot cake.
Cool and then spread with chocolate frosting.
Cut into bars and serve.
