Amish Church Peanut Butter

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite things about going to church, other than getting to play with my friends afterwards, was getting to eat the delicious peanut butter sandwiches that were always served as the noon meal.

I made up half a batch for Christmas and shared it with some of our friends. Sadly I can't share it with all my readers, but happily, I can share the recipe.

Amish Church Peanut Butter

2 lbs. creamy peanut butter
¾ cup butter
¾ cup brown sugar
6 cups marshmallow crème
¾ cup corn syrup
1¼ cup hot water

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and sugar. In a big bowl combine peanut butter, hot water, corn syrup, and marshmallow crème. Add the melted butter and sugar mixture and mix thoroughly. It should be easily spreadable. You can add more hot water if you want it a little thinner.

Store in refrigerator, but warm to room temperature before using.

I live less than an hour from an Amish community so I see Amish women shopping with their driver very often at my local shopping meca. I always get a laugh when I run into them at the local Aldi! Their shopping is well planned and meticulous. I was laughing one day when I watched the carts of peanut butter, sugar, marshmallow creme and sandwich bread heading towards the check out! I KNEW what that was for!

Thank you for all of the recipes you share. I'd like to try this one with apple slices and/or celery sticks. A good treat for watching the Steeler game this weekend :)

Oh my goodness, that looks delicious. Thank you for sharing.

Does this mean that one serves this alone on the bread, that is, without jam, since it contains lots of sugar?

Thanks for the recipe! I'm looking forward to trying this - I've read about it for years!
