The Grandma Zone: Scotch Bars

Having now made this myself, I can say that butter is the obvious choice unless you are baking for a fleishig meal. Butter represents a significant upgrade in flavor. You might try coconut oil in place of shortening if you like the flavor, but I have not tried this myself.

Cream shortening. Add sugars. Add egg yolk (and vanilla). Beat until fluffy.

Stir in (salt,) flour and rolled oats.

Spread in an 11" X 7" greased pan.

Bake at 350 °F for 20 - 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.

Melt the package of chocolate chips in a bowl.

Spread the melted chocolate over the bars and sprinkle with the nuts.

Cut when cool.
