This recipe is especially exciting for us to share with you from Janet because the story behind them is so wonderful. We'll let you read the story later on Janet's Facebook page, but this recipe obviously brought up memories for many ladies (and men). The recipe is for 'Peanut Butter Bars'.

It is such a delight to be able to expose even more people to Janet's recipes. She sounds so genuine and like such a delightful person. These peanut butter bars are baked in a good old 9x13-inch cake pan. This means its going to be easy! I love recipes that use this pan as they generally indicate an easy to do recipe and who does not love being able to cut squares, put them on a plate or wrap them for lunch boxes. Of course, my mother wrapped all our baked goods and sandwiches in waxed paper. A roll of waxed paper was a standard kitchen supply a number of years ago, now kids lunch boxes are full of pre-packaged food, or food in a plastic baggie or plastic containers with lids.

The recipe itself is just peanut butter, butter or margarine, self-rising flour, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla. You'll get the proportions soon. These peanut butter bars are also frosted with a yummy peanut butter and confectioners' sugar frosting. Yes, you have all these simple ingredients that when combined and baked may bring you way back to your own school days. (of course depending on just how old you are!)For this yummy recipe, visit the link below to Janet's Appalachian Kitchen Facebook page. Enjoy!
