1 cup peanut butter, crunchy
1/3 cup butter
2-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups brown sugar
5 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt

2/3 cup peanut butter
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk

Directions: Cream butters and sugars together, add eggs and vanilla and mix. Add dry ingredients slowly while mixing. Mixture will be very stiff. Spread in jelly roll cookie sheet 18x15 inch, sprinkle with chopped nuts and bake 35 minutes at 350°F. To make the frosting, beat 2/3 cup peanut butter, powdered sugar, milk, salt and vanilla together until smooth. May need to add more liquid to make spreadable. Ice and cut while warm.
