Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars   Peanut butter is always a hit at my house! These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars will definitely please any peanut butter lover! This is an old recipe from my childhood that I pulled out a few months ago. My kids devoured them in minutes which makes this a new favorite in our house!
   I just made a double batch..., and they were gone in less than 10 minutes! I almost didn't get any myself! (Here my husband is taking the last few, but he saved the last three for me.)
Double recipe devoured in under 10 minutes!Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars
   ⅛ tsp. salt
   ⅔ c. flour
   ½ c. brown sugar
   ¼ tsp. baking soda
   ¼ c. peanut butter
   3 Tbsp. shortening
   1 egg, beaten
   ½ tsp vanilla
   3 ½ tsp. milk
   ¼ c. quick oats
   ¾ c. powder sugar
   1 Tbsp. butter
   1 Tbsp. peanut butter
   2 or 3 tsp. milk
Combine salt, flour, brown sugar, and baking soda in mixing bowl. Cut in peanut butter and shortening until crumbs form. Mix in eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add oats. Place dough in 8x11-inch greased baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool and then frost. Cut into bars and serve.
Frosting: Mix together peanut butter and butter. Gradually add sugar. Begin adding milk until you have desired consistency.

   When I double this recipe... which I have to if I want any myself... I use the large Pampered Chef bar pan.
