I made something YUMMY today.....they are my Aunt Rose's Oatmeal Bars!! They are special because they have chocolate chips and chocolate frosting! I just HAD to share them with you.....
I decided to make cookies because look what I got this past weekend.....
So, the recipe.....
This recipe is from the 1960's -- my father's sister Rose gave it to my mom when she was first married to my dad! There's a reason it's lasted this long!! :-D (although their marriage only lasted 2 years! LOL)
Start with softened butter, sugar, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of hot water (I don't know why, but I just do it!).....
Then combine flour, baking soda, salt, and oatmeal.....
Then, my favorite part......
Mix in the chocolate chips and then spread the batter in a greased (I use spray) 9x13 pan.....
When it's done, cool it for an hour or so, then MAKE the FROSTING!!!! Yay!
I'll type out the recipe below, since I didn't give the specifics with the pictures.....
1 c. butter
2/3 c. white sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar (I just use white again and add 2 T. of molasses)
1 T. hot water
1 1/2 c. flour
1t. baking soda
2 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. chocolate chips (I always use 1 c.)
1/2 c. nuts (if you want them)
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes
3 T. butter
