Oatmeal Bars with Chocolate Icing

I got back into town early and decided to bake. But I didn’t want to scoop cookies or frost cupcakes so I decided upon a nice and easy bar cookie. I simply Googled “oatmeal bars” and came up with this one.

These are okay. Nothing special and a little boring. I probably won’t be making them again.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
6 ounces milk chocolate bars or morsels
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Cream 1 cup butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Add flour and rolled oats and mix well. Spread in a greased and floured 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

Melt chocolate bars or morsels with the 2 tablespoons of butter. Spread over cooled cookie layer; sprinkle with chopped nuts. Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares.

Makes 48 cookies.

Notes: I omitted the nuts. Also, I used my hands to spread the batter into the baking pan–it was really thin.
