My grandma used to make these for me all the time when I was little...now I make them for my kids. This a wonderful, quick bar cookie that isn't too sweet!
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup shortening
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup oatmeal
- 1 pinch salt
- 12 ounces chocolate chips
- Mix all ingredients together -- my grandma wasn't fancy --
- Put it in a 9x9 square pan for thick cookies or a 9x13 for thinner cookies.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Loved this, kids loved this, neighbors loved this, co-workers loved this. I loved the little time I had to spend making this . Only thing I added was vanilla extract and a dollop of sour cream cause it was in need to get used. Thanks for posting!
This is really a good recipe. Seems like the fewer the ingredients the better sometimes. I used butter instead of shortening and added 1 tsp. of vanilla. Put it into an 8 x 8 square pan and baked it for 20 minutes. Very moist and chewy. I will make this again.
These are excellent. Easy to make--half an hour to my chocolate/peanut butter fix! No bake time was given--23 minutes worked for me. I did the 9x9 pan. Yummm...bless your Grandma Evelyn!
