These were really fun. I have kind of had these in the back of my mind for a while now but haven't made them because IT Guy isn't much of a peanut butter fan. I know. Weird, right? I told him that I wanted to try these but didn't want to do it if he wasn't going to eat them. I certainly didn't want to be responsible for eating the entire pan by myself. He said he'd help...that they actually sounded pretty good. And guess what? They are terrific! I added some chocolate chips but that's totally your call. A thin layer of icing finished them off perfectly! A really yummy twist on sweet rolls!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
