Peanut Butter Fingers

This was requested by a reader so here's the does have peanut butter and brown sugar which need to be approved...

Peanut Butter Fingers
1 cup real butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar*
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter*
2 eggs
1-1 1/2 tsp real vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 cup flour (I use about half WW flour)
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups oats (can be whole or quick)
Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl. Mix all wet ingredients in mixer until well mixed. Add dry ingredients and mix well again. With either softened butter or shortening*, have a child *paint* an extra large cookie sheet (with sides) or 2 rectangular casserole dishes. Spread mixture onto the cookie sheet or casserole dishes, rounding the edges down. Bake at 350 for 15 min. Make chocolate frosting while it's baking (recipe below). Frost with more creamy Peanut Butter * while it's still warm. Allow to cool completely (some people put it in the freezer to cool faster), then frost with chocolate frosting.
Homemade Chocolate Frosting
3 3/4 c. powdered sugar
8 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Cube real butter
7 TBS whole milk
1 1/2 tsp real vanilla extract
Cream butter until smooth, gradually beat in about half of the sugar alternately with half of the milk. Mix in the cocoa and vanilla. Then beat in the remaining sugar and milk and mix well. Adjust the amounts of milk or sugar if necessary. For a more chocolaty flavor, add a little more cocoa powder. For less chocolaty flavor, use less cocoa.
* = Be sure to use approved brand!
