Peanut Butter Bars

Note:  These are not Reese's bars, but still delicious!

1 cup crunch peanut butter
2/3 cups soft butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 tsp salt

Combine peanut butter, vanilla and margarine in large bowl; beat with electric beater until well-blended.  Beat in sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs, one at a time.

Stir in flour and salt just until well-blended; spread batter in greased 13 x 9 x 2" pan.

Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 35 minutes or until center springs back when touched.  Remove to wire rack, cool slightly.

Combine 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar and 2 tsp water to smooth; drizzle over top, swirl with back of spoon.  Melt 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 tsp shortening in double boiler; drizzle over white glaze.  Cool.  Cut into 36 bars.  Remove from pan with spatula.

Note:  I seldom do step 4 as they are quite rich without the frosting.
