Peanut Butter Brownies: Recipe #2 from Sunday Dinner at Grandma's

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.)

Special thanks to Gooseberry Patch for providing me with this great cookbook to try and share with you. If you would like to purchase this or other cookbooks, please visit their store. If you would like to see other great recipes, check out www.realfarmwivesofamerica.com .




  1. These DO look yummy! Wonder what they would taste like with some chocolate fudge icing on top.....just dreaming ;-)

  2. Sounds delish! I love brownies and peanut butter, can't wait to try this recipe!!

  3. Yummy just got these delicious brownies out of the oven. DELICIOUS! Only problem I see there could be no brownies left when the hubby gets home with only the delicious aroma lingering. Could be in hot water if I don't make more.

  4. I've made these twice now and absolutely love them! Thanks for posting this recipe.
