Amish Church Peanut Butter Spread

Amish Church Peanut Butter Spread

One of my kids favorite treats is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Now imagine a peanut butter spread that is sweet enough on it's own that you really don't miss the jelly.  Imagine that you could almost eat it by the spoonful (though not recommended of course).

I got a few Amish cookbooks for Christmas and in the midst of all the delicious recipes, some known some new to me, I found the recipe for this peanut butter spread which my kids LOVE.

I tried it a few years ago when it was gifted to me by a friend.  Unfortunately I don't live near an Amish community or I would have already bought more, but I'm glad that I can now make it at home.

It is usually served at Amish gatherings, especially on Church days where it will be served on homemade bread.  It is also good on cakes, crackers, even pancakes.

May refrigerate; let sit at room temperature a few minutes before using for sandwiches.

  3. Have you ever tried pumpkin peanut butter spread? It's a huge hit with my two little ones. Just mix up equal parts canned pumpkin and peanut butter. It does need refrigerated though. I'll be trying a batch of this Amish spread very soon!

  4. my siblings and I would mix up a bowl of peanut butter, syrup (karo or maple) and real butter (just a little). It was one of our favorite after school snacks. My mom, now 74 ate it when she was a child.
