Gluten Free Peanut Butter Bars

Pin It
               Peanut Butter Bars


     These Peanut Butter Bars, taste just like the ones I used to eat as a child in grade school.  However; I am not a fan of cooked frosting, so all of my frosting is NEVER cooked!  I know that is so weird, but I really love soft frosting, and my friends and family like thick frosting, so my recipe for frosting is pretty much by taste and consistency, not measurement.  
      I took these bars to a large church function, and they were eaten right up; this was to be a Gluten Free meal, but not all the desserts.  I happened to over hear a few ladies saying they didn't want Gluten Free dessert, the best part was they were eating the bars, and YUMMMING at the same time!! I couldn't wait to tell them, they were GF.  We really love this recipe and I hope you do too.   Happy Baking, Natalie                                                                                            



Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups softened butter
   1/2 cup sugar
   1 cup brown sugar
   2 cup peanut butter (I like Skippy, it is GF)   Cream these  these ingredients together, then add

   1 TB vanilla 
   3 eggs
