Sweet Treats: Oatmeal Chocolate Bars & Gingersnaps

These two recipes are one of my FAVORITE sweet treats.  I got the bar recipe from my sister-in-law Kellie who is the Queen of Bars!!!  The gingersnap recipe is from a lady in Ernie’s parent’s old ward…and it is my go to christmas cookie (they are SOOOOOO good).

Oatmeal Chocolate Bar

Make fudge
1 can of condensed milk
1 cup milk chocolate chips
add 2 TBL soft butter
2 TBL vanilla
Melt

Mix together:
1 cup melted butter
add 2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
3 cup oats
nuts optional (but what cookies aren’t good without nuts)

Get a 9×13 greased pan
Smash 2/3 oatmeal mixture on bottom and kind of spread up the sides a little
Pour Chocolate mixture over it
Put remaining oatmeal mixture on top (I make them into little pancake patties and piece it together

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes

Gingersnaps
3/4 cup shortening
1 Cup sugar
2 eggs
3 1/2 T molasses
2 Cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 /2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon

Cream shortening and sugar.  Add eggs and molasses and mix well.  Combine flour and other dry ingredients, mixing well.  Make small balls of dough, about 1″ in diameter.  Roll in sugar.  Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.  I like to take them out a closer to 8-9 minutes so that they are chewy. Mmm Mmm Mmm I can already taste them now!!!

HAPPY SWEET TREATS!!!
