Mother's Day was the perfect opportunity for me to make not one, but two recipes from Gooseberry Patch's Sunday Dinner at Grandma's as part of the Gooseberry Patch and The Real Farmwives of America and Friends In the Kitchen partnership. Since recipe #1 was slightly nutritious, I had to go with something sweet for recipe #2: Peanut Butter Brownies
1/3 c. shortening
2 T. baking cocoa
1 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 t. salt
1/3 c. creamy peanut butter
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt shortening and cocoa together.
Cool; transfer to a medium bowl.
Stir in sugar and eggs.
Add flour and salt.
Mix well; fold in peanut butter.
Spread in a greased 8"x8" baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
Enjoy! (These brownies didn't make it 24 hours at my pig pen.)
