This is a tasty peanut butter spread, sometimes known as 'church spread' that is common among the Amish and Mennonite communities. Great on bread, bananas, ice cream, etc.

I live in Ohio and visit Amish country often. This stuff is sold at just about every authentic Amish restaurant and many roadside markets etc. You put it on bread folks -- just like you would peanut butter or butter. They serve it with white and wheat dinner rolls before your meal comes. It's a sweet spread you put on a roll bagel English muffin whatever -- instead of jam. It's sweet; the Amish have a major sweet tooth. If you love peanut butter and you aren't allergic to something that isn't so good for you every now and again this is going to ring your bell. Kids love it. My 42 year-old husband loves it. My 67 year-old mother loves it. It's just a nice treat and interesting change from your basic jam/butter/PB and we never leave Amish country without a tub of it. Now we can make it every once in a while at home! I have asked the Amish women how this is made and they told me it has marshmallow cream and corn syrup so I know this recipe is right on. Read More

This is more like a peanut butter topping for ice cream. It goes well on toast too though. Heck peanut butter goes great on anything in my opinion. I also made a batch where I added carmel ice cream topping and mixed it together. Of course that was certainly used for ice cream sundaes. This is exactly like a spread that is served at an Amish restaurant in Southern Indiana. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This is really good. My Mom has made it for years. We use it as a "dip" and serve it with Granny Smith apple slices and pretzel rods. It stays perfectly soft and creamy and is great for large gatherings! Read More

I don't know what to think of this stuff? But I may also be the only person who has never tried it that rated it on here. It really is good. The consistency if very different then I expected. It is super gooey yet sticky. I am not sure what to put it on either? It seems like it would be like putting a peanut butter dessert on toast? But then again people eat honey and chocolate spreads for breakfast on bread. I did scale the recipe way down though to about 1/4 cup to try it. I bet kids would go crazy over this though! Read More

I have bought similar 'Peanut Butter Cream' from many different Amish stores and this one rates right up there too. We love this stuff either on something or as a dip for apples or even by itself on a spoon. I also enjoy the similar one made with molasses though it has a slightly different name peanut butter schmeare. Read More
