This is a recipe that came from the Cafeteria Ladies at Benito Juarez Elementary School in San Diego, Ca. They would make these and sell them outside in the patio area after we had lunch. I have such fond memories of these chews and everytime I make them I am reminded of my days at Juarez.
Combine shortening, sugar, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla. Blend at low speed.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt. Add to first mixture. Add oatmeal and mix well. Spread onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
DO NOT OVERBAKE
Icing- 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 1 tsp milk
Mix together and spread on warm chews-cut when warm, remove when cool. You may need more or less icing depending on your like.
