Peanut Butter Bars

When my grandfather was ill with Alzheimers, my grandmother found him pouring water into her recipe box. This was unknown to me and much later, when I asked her if I could go through her recipes, she told me what had happened and that the recipes were gone.

But. . . some were not.

When going through her things after her death I found some recipes. Some are water stained but most are in good enough condition to read. Tonight I made her peanut butter bars.

Peanut Butter Bars

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 c butter (melted)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 tsp salt

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.


1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup confectionery sugar
milk (add enough to make smooth and a little runny)

Pour frosting over bars. Let set. Enjoy.

I remember when he did that during one of his late night wanderings.I wonder what he was thinking...probably mixing cement.

If you get a chance can you send me the Gypsy Jamboree Chocolate cake recepie? It's my favorite!!!
