Toll House Oatmeal Squares


Toll House Oatmeal Squares

Greased 13” x 9" pan, oven preset to 350°

Cream together:

1 Cup shortening
1 Cup brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat in: 2 eggs

Toss together and add to sugar-egg mixture and blend well:

1½ Cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Fold in:

2 Cup uncooked oatmeal
1 Cup chopped nuts

Spread above mixture into pan and sprinkle evenly across the top one 12 oz. package of semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

Bake in preheated oven for only one minute, until chocolate morsels are melty. Remove from oven and run a knife through the chocolate and dough to marble. Return pan to oven and bake until set and dough mixture is golden brown, approximately 12 to 14 minutes. Test for doneness: A sharp knife or toothpick should come clean after being inserted into dough near center of pan.

Cool before cutting. Yields approximately 24 2" bars.
