1 c. sugar
1 c. light karo syrup

heat to a boil over med-high heat. stir in 1 c. peanut butter.
add 6 c. rice krispies. press into buttered 9x13 pan.

melt together 6 oz. chocolate chips and 6 oz. butterscotch chips.
spread on top of rice krispies. refrigerate to set chocolate, cut at room temp.

*I like to make a half batch (in a 9x9 pan), otherwise there are too many for two people (not that we couldn't eat them all)

Oat 'n Chip Cookies

2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 c. packed brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. flour
5 c. oatmeal (4 lightly ground)
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
2 lb. chocolate chips
3 c. chopped walnuts

cream butter and sugars until fluffy. mix in eggs and vanilla.

grind 4 c. oatmeal in a food processor.

in a separate bowl stir together flour, ground oatmeal (4 c.), whole oatmeal (1 c.), salt, baking powder and baking soda. gradually mix into sugar mixture. fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.

drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets, bake 12 - 14 min at 350. let cool slightly on pan before moving to cooling rack.

*all time favorite cookie - this makes a huge amount of cookies, in fact my kitchen aid can't hold all of the dough if I make a full recipe. i suggest just making half a recipe, you will still have a ton of delicious cookies.

New Favorite Banana Bread

3 mashed bananas
1/3 c. melted butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg - beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
pinch salt
1 1/2 c. flour

mix melted butter into bananas. mix in sugar, egg and vanilla.
sprinkle salt and baking soda over mixture, mix in flour.
pour into buttered loaf pan.
cook for one hour at 350

*I always freeze my bananas when they start to get too brown, then I just slip them out of their frozen jackets and they are perfect for baking.
