Tasty Tuesday


  
           I have a double feature for you today, a recipe and a giveaway to match! I've posted about our love for brownies before but with Valentines Day only 2 weeks away, I thought I'd share a peanut butter brownie recipe with you that I've been baking for decades. I stumbled on it one day when I didn't have any chocolate in the house( I was once poor like that) and the kids were wanting dessert that night, so I combed through my cookbooks and clippings and came across this little dandy.

Peanut Butter Brownies

1 3/4 c. peanut butter
1/3 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1. c. brown sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 T. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
Combine butter and sugars. Blend in eggs. Add peanut butter and mix well. Add vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt to mixture. Mix well. Pour into a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 25-35 min.
Topping:
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. butter
1 c. peanuts (optional)
Cook sugar, butter and milk till it comes to a boil. Add peanuts to make a spread, frost after cooling.


   Now, I bake them for my hubby when he wants dessert! I like this recipe because it has a good peanut butter flavor and you can always add some chocolate chips to the mix, the mini ones would be perfect!
As for the giveaway, I had a email come through today about a brownie giveaway, these brownies have won awards they are that  good, but sad to say, I've never heard of them nor tasted them. But we have a chance to win some, just head over to Todays Giveaway and look up FairyTale Browines for the sweet offer! Good luck and happy baking!
