Treats during General Conference

This weekend is special to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is our semi-annual general conference where we listen to talks from the leadership, apostles and prophet of our church. If you'd like to know more about that, feel free to ask, or check out

While we listen from home as a family, we try to have some fun treats to enjoy while we do. Here's what we're making this afternoon.

(We call them Janika cookies, others call them Peanut Butter Bars)

½ cup butter or margarine
½ c sugar
½ c brown sugar- firmly packed
1 egg
½ c peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
½ tsp vanilla
½ tsp soda
½ tsp salt
1 c flour
1 c oatmeal

Cream together first four ingredients. Mix in vanilla and peanut butter. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. If dough is too sticky, add more oats or flour. Gradually mix them into peanut butter mixture. Spread dough into an ungreased cookie sheet. (11x13) Bake at 325 for 12 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE.
Cool slightly. Spread thin layer of peanut butter over entire thing. Cool completely. Frost with your favorite chocolate frosting. (I like a fudge-type frosting on this.)
