Chewy Peanut Butter Bars

At our house, it's not unusual to have unexpected company in the evenings. Several young singles from our church gladly accept our open invitation for them to drop in. Because of that, I like to have recipes close at hand that can be whipped up quickly. I've definitely done some maneuvering in my time to make a meal stretch farther! One way I do that is with quick breads, like bisclettes or cornbread. Another way is with simple, yummy desserts like these peanut butter bars. They're mixed together right on the stovetop, so there's only one pot to wash!

Chewy Peanut Butter Bars

½ cup peanut butter
½ cup butter/margarine
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large saucepan, melt butter and peanut butter. Remove from heat; add sugar and flour. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Spread into a greased and floured 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
