peanut butter brownies

i had to make something to try out my new camera, so i whipped up some peanut butter brownies. i have had this recipe lying around for sometime, yet never had made them. boy howdy what have i been missing? these babies are gooooood. they are super simple to make, yet totally decadent. they are dense and sweet, yet not overpowering of peanut butter. these are a real do again folks. just imagine a big ole scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with hot fudge sauce perched on top of this baby. oooh mama. enjoy.

Peanut Butter Brownies

5 tablespoons butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon real vanilla
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup peanut butter( i used creamy)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

melt butter in a saucepan, remove from heat and stir in the sugar till well mixed. add the rest of the ingredients. pour into a greased 8x8 pan. bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit about 30 to 40 minutes. keep an eye on them, they can burn quickly. use your nose, once you smell them start a lookin'. cool and cut into bars. yummy.

Yikes, those look amazing!
Plus the recipe cuts butter but inserts fat in peanut butter. That's almost healthy, isn't it?
