Dessert is what is cookin' today!

We had a big bake off day last week for a church bar-b-q.  My little one and I had a fabulous morning of stirring, baking and maybe even trying our treats.  We made a batch of cupcakes, a  batch of brownies (Which we topped with milk chocolate chips as soon as it came out of the oven and spread around to make a nice topping!), our easy peasy chocolate chip bars, and a new strawberry oat bar.  YUMMY!  Here are the recipes for the two bars we made.  I hope your family enjoys!

I just kind of tried this one day just to see how it works and it was fabulous.  So I call them easy peasy chocolate chip bars...

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 stick of room temp butter
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
1 bag chocolate chips

Mix first four ingredients.  Dough will be sticky.  Stir in chips.  Pat mixture down in a jelly roll pan sprayed with baking spray.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until desired doneness.  We like ours extra soft!

This is a Pioneer Woman's recipe that I can take no credit for.  It is sooooo good!

1 3/4 sticks salted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for greasing pan - ( I used room temp unsalted butter!)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
One 10 to 12-ounce jar strawberry preserves

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch rectangular pan.

Mix together the butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Press half the oat mixture into the prepared pan. Spread with the strawberry preserves. Sprinkle the other half of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly. Bake until light brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, and then cut into squares.

Today's Verse
Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
