PEANUT BUTTER BARS

PEANUT BUTTER BARS
1 c. butter
1 c. white sugar
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
2 c. oatmeal
2 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 c. plus more for spreading, peanut butter


Cream butter, sugars, eggs and peanut butter together, add other ingredients and mix well. Press into a 13’x 18 1/2’x 1′ pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 min. Cool and spread with peanut butter, then spread chocolate frosting on top of that. Cut into bars and serve.

These cookies are also best when slightly underdone. If you overcook, they will be very dry.

Chocolate Frosting
1/4 c. (1/2 cube) softened butter
1/2 t. salt
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. almond flavoring (optional)
4 T. cocoa
4-1/2 to 5 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. milk, cream, canned milk, or buttermilk


Mix everything together in a mixing bowl until creamy and spread on cooled cake or peanut butter cookies. If the spreading consistency is not smooth enough, add more milk or powdered sugar until it is the right consistency. Makes enough to frost 9×13 cake.
