 Peanut Butter Apple Dessert
"My mom, who's well-known in our community for her cooking, shared the recipe for this yummy layered dessert," writes Kim Spencer of Hickman, Nebraska. "It's very popular with my husband. He made it in a 9 x 13 pan for his men's Bible study group and ended up giving out the recipe!"
