Recipe for the Best Cookies you Will Ever Eat

By: Luanne Reilly Oda

This delicious cookie recipe is from the very little (heart shaped) cookbook titled The Bear Facts Recommends. It was published by a small company back in the 1980's. I am sure it is no longer in print. They called the cookies simply CARAMEL BARS. The cookies taste like a candy bar and anyone you share them with will love them too!

The Ingredients are

2 cups flour
2 cups quick rolled oats
1.5 cups brown sugar
1tsp. baking soda
1tsp. salt
1.5 cups melted butter
1 14 ounce pkg Kraft Caramels ( or similar )
1 cup evaporated milk
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped or dry roasted peanuts.
I always use real butter not margarine, & I prefer the walnuts, but that is up to your taste.

Mix flour, oats, brown sugar, soda, salt and butter. Press 1/2 to 3/4 of mixture into a 11" x 16" jelly roll pan.Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5 minutes. Melt caramels with evaporated milk in a double boiler. Sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts over cooked crust. Spread caramel mixture over chips & nuts. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on the top. Bake 15- 20 minutes at 350 degrees until golden brown. These will be a big hit with everybody - they taste like a candy bar!

Recipe makes 3- 4 dozen cookies. After cooling I like to use the smaller sized spatula either one made by pampered chef, or a similar one to remove cookies from pan. Serve on a pretty cookie plate, or pedestal cake plate.

These cookies are wonderful anytime, but I particularly like them in the fall. I think the carmels make me think of caramel apples which remind me of fall.
