Peanut Butter Brownies

1/2 c. peanut butter
2/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. butter
1/2 c. firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp. almond or vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)

Combine peanut butter and butter, blending well. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating well. Stir in almond extract. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture; stir well. Toss in roasted peanuts (if using). Spread mixture evenly into a greased 9" square pan. Bake at 350F for 30-35 min. Cool completely in pan and cut into squares.

To double: use 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar. Bake in jelly roll pan for thinner brownies, or a 9x13 pan for thicker brownies.
