I admit that I don't remember most of the food served in my high school cafeteria any more. But the bakery! Umm-umm! I still have recipes for Chewy Peanut Butter Bars and Cornmeal Sugar Cookies that I use to this day.
Could you be talked into sharing that Cornmeal Sugar cookie recipe!!???Please please please!!
Actually, I was hankerin' for the CHEWY peanut butter bars! Hmmm????
After making that post, I discovered that I couldn't find the cookie recipe. This is, I hope, a temporary situation that can be resolved with some serious housecleaning. But here is the Chewy Peanut Butter Bar recipe, courtesy of the Milwaukee Public School System circa 1973:
Chewy Peanut Butter Bars
1-3/4 c. flour 1-1/2 c. sugar
1-3/4 t. baking powder 1/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. shortening 1/2 T. salt
3 eggs 1 T. vanilla
7 ounces peanut butter 4 ounces coconut
Mix flour and baking powder together. Combine shortening, peanut butter, both sugars, salt, eggs, and vanilla in mixer bowl. Mix until well blended. Add dry ingredients, mix only until blended. Mix in coconut. Spread into greased 13x9 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Makes 24 bars.
