Eskimo Bars

(Don't ask me why they are called that)

1 3/4 cup sugar
1 cup butter
3 cups flour
1 can pie filling (whatever sounds good)
1 t vanilla
1/2 t almond extract
4 eggs
1/2 t baking powder

Grease and flour cake pan. Combine all ingredients except pie filling in large mixing bowl. Press half the dough into bottom of pan. Cover with pie filling. Dot rest of dough on top by teaspoons. Leave some pie filling showing so it looks fabulous when cooked! Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Delicious!

Peanut Butter Popcorn

1 cup Karo Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 t vanilla
2 bags microwave popcorn

Pop popcorn and separate from unpopped kernels.
Bring Karo syrup and sugar to a boil, add peanut butter and vanilla. Allow to boil for a minute, stirring constantly, but do not scorch! Pour over popcorn and stir! Enjoy!
