SCHOOL PEANUT BUTTER BARS
Preparing this recipe was quick and easy!
A friend, Kim Poncelet, posted this recipe on her Facebook page this week. It was obvious (because of some of the comments) that it has been around for a while but I had not seen it before so I want to share it here on my blog.
I must share some things about Kim. She moved away several years ago but when she lived here, we did early morning walks together. She would always call me every morning because she knew what a late sleeper I could be and I can say that some times when that phone rang early in the morning I’d want to turn over and go back to sleep; however, I’d roll out of bed, dress, drink a glass of water and meet her for our walk. There was NEVER a – not even one – time that I was sorry that I walked. It was always rejuvenating.
Kim has always been a self-motivator and hard-working person. I’ve admired for her prudence and for her ability to manage her life. She is a wonderful seamstress and has even conducted quilting classes. She teaches water aerobics too. Yes, Kim stays ahead of the curve and like I said, I admire her.
The recipe is named ‘School Peanut Butter Bars’ so I had some ready for two of my young family when they stopped here after school yesterday.
· INGREDIENTS: ½ c butter ½ c sugar ½ c brown sugar 1 egg 1/3 c peanut butter ½ tsp soda ¼ tsp salt ½ tsp vanilla 1 c flour 1 c oatmeal
Mix as usual; bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes in a 9 X 13 greased/floured pan. (Double this recipe for a cookie sheet size.)
NOTE: It works best to cut the bars before frosting them.
· FROSTING: 1 c powdered sugar ½ c peanut butter add enough milk to make a thin icing. (Double this if you doubled the bar recipe)
