cookies that are good for your soul

when searching through my recipes to find something to take for the "soul food sampler" at church, i came across this cookie recipe that i haven't had in years, and the thought of yummy peanut butter fingers sent warm fuzzies all the way down to my toes. they're hardly good-for-you treats, but they're definitely good for your soul.

peanut butter fingers
(from janice gamiere)

1/2 C. margarine
1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 C. peanut butter
1/2 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 C. flour
1 C. quick oats
6 oz. chocolate chips

peanut butter drizzle:
1/4 c. peanut butter
1/2 C. powdered sugar
4 T. milk

1) cream margarine and sugars
2) blend in egg, peanut butter, soda, salt and vanilla
3) stir in flour and oats
4) spread into greased 13 x 9 pan; bake 20 - 25 minutes (350∞)
5) immediately on removing from oven, sprinkle 6 oz. chocolate chips, let stand 5 min. and spread evenly.
6) drizzle with peanut butter mixture

if you're going to pack this one to take somewhere, make it a day ahead as it takes some time for the top to get "unsticky"
i wish i had a really nicely styled photo of the finished product, but trust me, this recipe is worth a try.
