Paula Deen's Peanut butter bars

By Stormy Stewart karlyn255

This recipe I found on page 150 of paula's cook book entitled
"Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook"

Then I added a frosting of my own.

Mine are darker because I used dark brown sugar instead of regular sugar

Warning: With the dark brown sugar they are very sweet

Directions Step-By-Step

For the bars:

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees, Grease and flour a 9x13 pan (I only had a 9x11 so I used that).
Melt butter and peanut butter together over hot water. (I put it in a pan and on simmer it was fast and easy)
Pour into remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour into greased and floured pan and bake 25-30 minutes. (I did 35 as mine was in a smaller pan.) Cook and cut into squares.
NOTE: Besides the things I stated above at the 30 minute mark I took them out of the oven and topped with the frosting and returned it to the oven 5-10 minutes more.

For the frosting just mix all together adding enough water to make a regular icing and frost the hot bars. The frosting will be thin and melty at this point. Return to oven 5-10 minutes until it bubbles or looks really hot and remove and cool. cut and serve
