  1. Very yummy, quick and easy!
  2. These were amazing! Really, everyone who tried them couldn't get enough of them. Some people said they weren't sweet enough, but that is a matter of personal preference and a half cup granulated sugar fixed it for them. The peanut butter topping is great, and it doesn't even require that many ingredients! Once, I was out of butter, so I used 1/2 cup canola oil instead. It still turned out great! Also, The cooking times listed on here are way too long. Bake the mixture in the pan for 10 minutes like it says, add peanut butter topping and chunks of leftover dough, then bake for just fifteen minutes longer or you'll burn them!
  3. This is GREAT!! The peanut butter flavor is just right. Everyone I server it to loves it, even my husband who is not big on peanut butter. An it is so quick and easy. Enjoy


Started cooking at age 11 and used the better homes and garden red and black check cookbook.....absolutely my favorite hobby to cook, I have every known appliance to woman, but dont eat much and weight 100lbs at 51 years old. I am married to a man that loves to eat, my favorite foods to cook are actually Italian foods from scratch and pastry, all fresh preferably home grown herbs used in cooking. I have two grown sons 28 and 26 that are human vaccuum cleaners when they visit. Living in Florida, I cook alot during Hurricane season to make sure we have less frozen foods on hand and go nuts cooking, this is the time of the year everyone loves to come here, there is always too much food on my table....
