Though peanut butter-like products existed in the Americas since the time of the Aztecs, extra creamy, smooth peanut butter as we know it today wasn't invented until the 1800s by George Washington Carver. It is a unique, authentically American food product that is now beloved in cultures around the world!  If you want to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day with something more than just a scoop from the jar, these fabulous peanut buttery baked goods will definitely satisfy.
