The Georgia Peaches Reading Room!

Estelle's received a call this morning from Atlanta requesting some yummy and quick recipes to prepare for the bookclub meeting this evening. Atlanta was blanketed with a sprinkling of snow overnight, so they are looking forward to some warm southern comfort food as they discuss their latest book read! Light the candles, pour a glass of wine and set the table darlings.....

Estelle's to the rescue! Dinner is served for you delightful Georgia Peaches!! Boots by the door please..........

From the " Best of the Best of Mississippi!"

Estelle's Quick Delicious Rolls
2 cups self-rising flour
4 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 teaspoon white sugar

Combine all ingredients in bowl. Mix thoroughly (about 2 minutes). Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake at 450° for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown. Yummy!

Peanut Butter Marbled Brownies (An old Betty Crocker Recipe)
 Peanut Butter Mixture:
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter (Estelle's uses Jiff)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 large eggs

1 box brownie mix, 9x13 family size
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup water
2 large eggs
1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 inch pan with nonstick foil, or spray lightly with cooking spray. In mixing bowl, combine sugar, peanut butter, flour and eggs. Mix on medium speed 2 minutes. Set aside.

In medium sized bowl, stir together brownie mix, water, oil and eggs until well combined. Spread evenly in baking pan. Drop peanut butter mixture by tablespoonfuls onto brownie batter. Sprinkle peanut butter chips around as well. Swirl through batter with knife.

Bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes, remove from baking pan using edges of foil and cool completely on wire rack. (You can use your own favorite brownie recipe, too, but sometimes, these mixes are great and quick and they taste good!
