Peanut Butter Squares

Well...let's see now... Peanut Butter goodness? The answer is Yes!!
I love these little treats.  I first encountered them in San Francisco
some years ago and managed to find an old recipe which tasted exactly
like the yummy squares I had!  

Peanut Butter Squares


1 ½ cups plain flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ cup peanut butter
90g of butter
1 ½ cups of packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup milk

Peanut Butter Frosting:
1 ½ cups sifted icing sugar
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 ½ tablespoons milk

Combine flour and baking powder.  Beat peanut butter and butter together
until blended.  Add brown sugar and beat until fluffy.  Then add the eggs
and vanilla dn mix well.  Add the dry ingredients and the milk alternately
and mix through.

Spread the mixture in a greased rectangular tin (about 2.5cm high). 
Place in a pre-heated medium oven (about 180 celsius) for about 20 minutes. 
The centre will stay slightly soft.  Leave to cool.

Make the peanut butter frosting by combining in a bowl the icing sugar
with the peanut butter.  Blend in the milk to make the mixture spreadable.

Once the squares are cooled down remove from the tin and add frosting. 


Cocinar, comer y ser feliz.
