Oh My Stars Cookie Bars.....

That's the name my kids gave these wonderful treats!

•1 cup butter, softened
•2 cups light brown sugar, packed
•2 eggs
•2 teaspoons vanilla
•2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon baking soda
•1 teaspoon salt
•3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats

Cream butter and brown sugar, add eggs and vanilla. Blend in salt, soda, then oats, and lastly the flour. Spread 2/3 of the mixture in greased 10x15x1.

•1 (15-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
•1 (12-oz) package (2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
•2 tablespoons butter
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•2 teaspoons vanilla
•2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts

Heat milk, choc chips, and butter until chocolate has melted. Stir in salt, vanilla, and nuts.

Pour over cookie mixture and spread evenly. Top with the remaining 1/3 cookie mixture.

Bake for 25 minutes at 350. Cool and cut.
(Opt. coconut would be great added to these!)
