Choosey wives choose Jif ....

....when making baked goods for her husband's co-workers!

Once again my husband had to head off on business this weekend with a couple of his co-workers. Since I've started the trend, I now need to live up to the anticipation of what I will bake for them next. My husband has started to field inquisitions and special requests as to what I may make for them on their next trip.

This time I sent Greg off with a double batch of Rich Chewy Peanut Butter Bars from the Jif website and, per usual, he came home with an empty platter.


Rich Chewy Peanut Butter Bars
(from Jif.com)



No-Stick Cooking Spray
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter, or crunchy
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9x2 inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray with flour.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside

Heat peanut butter and butter or margarine together until melted. Stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well blended.

Add flour mixture and stir just until combined. Spread batter in prepared pan.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on wire rack and cut into bars.

Yield: 36 servings
