Glazed Peanut Butter Bars

Since I've said it many times before, I won't get into how amazing my mother is.
However, these glazed peanut butter bars are SPECTACULAR. I substitute peanut butter chips for the butterscotch, but Mama always uses the butterscotch. Either way, these things are amazing.

Glazed Peanut Butter Bars

3/4 Cup butter-flavored crisco
3/4 Cup peanut butter
3/4 Cup sugar
3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
2 Teaspoon water
2 eggs
1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 1/2 Cup flour
1 1/2 Cup oatmeal
3/4 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 1/4 Cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 Cup butterscotch chips
1/2 Cup peanut butter

In a large mixing bowl, cream the crisco, peanut butter, sugars, & water. Beat in eggs & vanilla. Combine the flour, oatmeal, soda, & salt. Gradually add to the creamed mixture. Spread into a greased 15x10 pan. Bake at 325 for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.
For glaze, melt chips & peanut butter. Pour over warm bars and spread evenly. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.

Approx 4 dozen.

These are a hit, every time. All the time. The only thing negative about this is the amount it makes--not good for two people. :)
