Peanut Butter-Reduced fat/Generic
Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.
A cookie exchange introduced me to these fancy peanut butter treats. They're eye-catching for the holidays and bake sales.
These big country cookies fill up a hungry cowboy after a long ride rounding up cattle. But they're not just for wranglers! Our son, who's a geologist, packs them when he's working in the mountains and when he's fishing on the weekends. These treats are made to take along-in fact, I came up with this recipe while trying to match a commercial cookie that was good, but too soft to carry. My husband and I are semi-retired farmer/ranchers, living in northwestern Wyoming, east of Cody and near Yellowstone Park and the Bighorn Mountains. The land here is fertile, irrigated desert ground that produces sugar beets, pinto beans, alfalfa, barley for brewing and corn for silage.
These chewy, gooey bars surely won't last long. Good thing they're quick and easy to make!—Mary Schmittinger, Colgate, Wisconsin
