Did your high school cafeteria have any good treats that you still think about to this day? My high school had these incredibly soft M&M cookies that I still miss. When I came across a recipe for Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars, it immediately peaked my interest because of my fond memories of the beloved lunch lady cookies that I remember.
Chocolate and peanut butter in any recipe gives me high hopes that I will fall in love with the treat. These cookies begin with a soft and chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookie base. As soon as you take the cookies out of the oven you smear them with more peanut butter so that it melts with the warmth of the cookie crust. Finally, top all of that goodness off with a classic chocolate frosting and you’ll have visions of adorable lunch ladies dancing in your head when you eat one of these Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars.
This recipe comes from the new cookbook from Six Sisters’ Stuff. Can you imagine having a blog with your 5 sisters??? That’s exactly what this six remarkable ladies are lucky enough to do. Their first cookbook is filled with easy any day recipes that they use to feed their busy families. The sisters value getting their families to sit down together for a meal, which I admire.
Not only does Six Sisters’ Stuff cookbook offer over 80 recipes with nice color photos, but it also offers crafts and ideas such as a list of activities for children to do inside if they can’t go out on a rainy day. The recipe chapters are divided into Main Dishes, Slow Cookier, Sides, Salads, Breads and Desserts and all of the recipes are based on ingredients that you will likely already have in your pantry at home. Most of the recipes in this book are very simple and would be great for someone who is a beginner in the kitchen and is looking to learn some basics using easy-to-find ingredients.
There are certainly more dessert recipes in this book that have caught my attention such as the Sugar Cookie and S’mores Bars. Many of the main dishes in Six Sisters’ Stuff are casseroles and good down home type cooking that may remind you of some of your family classics.
