I got this recipe from Jean my co-worker.  She said she found the recipe in the Amish column in the Post Bulletin (Rochester, MN newspaper).   These bars are thicker than your standard bars and each bite is packed with a fantastic peanut butter flavor.   They will not disappoint.

2/3 C. butter, softened
1 1/2 C. sugar
