Sew Thankful Peanut Butter Fingers Recipe

(Peanut butter-oatmeal cookie bars with a creamy peanut butter-chocolate frosting)

Cookie base:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 unbeaten egg
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup chocolate chips (set aside to sprinkle on hot cookie)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees – oven temps vary, adjust according to your oven 

Cream butter and brown sugar (hint: add brown sugar gradually and cream until smooth); add white sugar, beat well.  Add/beat in egg, peanut butter and vanilla, mix well.

In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.

Gradually add dry ingredients to creamed mixture–mixing thoroughly.

Press dough mixture firmly and evenly into a prepared (greased and lightly floured)

9 x 13 pan.

Bake in preheated 350 oven for approx. 20 – 25 minutes.  Remove from oven, place pan on cooling rack. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of hot cookie base.  Allow chocolate chips to melt for a few minutes then drizzle the creamy peanut butter topping (below) over top of the cookie base.

Icing/Topping:

  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 – 4 Tablespoons Milk

In a small mixing bowl cream powdered sugar and peanut butter.

Add milk 1 Tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.

Gently use a frosting knife to swirl the peanut butter topping and melted chocolate chips across the cookie.  Do NOT over-mix . You want to see swirls of chocolate and swirls of peanut butter.

Allow to cool completely…they taste (and cut) better when cool.  Cut into 1″ x  2″ bar sections and enjoy.  Betcha can’t eat just one!
