Peanut Butter Fingers

I’d like to meet the person who decided to compliment peanut butter with chocolate! I’d like to shake his or her hand! I’d like to say a sincere, deep rooted, “THANK YOU!” I remember eating school lunch as a grade schooler and anticipating the days that Peanut Butter Fingers were served! BEST.LUNCH.DAYS.EVER! Luckily I never had to go too long without these peanut buttery gems, because my wonderful Momma had the BEST recipe for them at home! And I’m gonna share that recipe with you right now! Treat this recipe like gold, people!!!!!!!!!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix together:

1 1/2 cups butter, softened

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

3/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

Add and mix in:

3 cups oatmeal, ground up in blender

3 cups all purpose flour

This makes a HUGE batch, because believe me, they go FAST! You can always half the recipe if needed!:)

Divide dough between 2 regular rimmed cookie sheets. Press dough down evenly to reach all four corners. Bake for 15-20 min.

Once out of the oven, dollop spoonfuls of peanut butter (not included in ingredients above) all over top of warm and golden crust. Once the peanut butter has melted slightly, spread evenly over top. Let cool.
