In an ode to the Pennsylvania Dutch part of our heritage in the Coal Region, let me share with you a simple, 3-ingredient “schmear” (spread) that goes great with, well — EVERYTHING! You will find this at many church socials in the Pennsylvania Dutch country.

What do you do with Amish Peanut Butter Spread? Eat it on whatever appeals to you. It is nice on almost anything you would put peanut butter on: sliced bread, dinner rolls, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, waffles, pancakes, oatmeal, bananas, and my favorite apples. Of course, you can always eat it straight from the jar with a spoon!

It is so simple to whip up a batch, so go ahead – indulge.
