Iced Cinnamon, Apple, Raisin, & Oatmeal Bars! Good as A Drop Cookie Too!

Chewy & Gooey with lots of Apple & Raisin with Cinnamon all covered in a Vanilla Butter Cream drizzle. OK, so I more than drizzled but as I have said before I am a FROSTING LOVING FREAK! So if you cut back on the drizzle I won't be offended but I will look at you kind of funny!

1/2 Cup Shortening
1 & 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Egg or 2 if small! If batter seems dry add another egg!
1 TSP Vanilla
2 Cups Flour
1 TSP Baking Soda
1/2 TSP Salt
1/2 TSP Nutmeg
4 Medium Apples Peeled, Cored & Chopped in about 1/2 inch dice
3/4 Cup Raisin ( Optional)
1/2 Cup Oatmeal ( Old Fashioned) or Nuts
1 Cup Cinnamon Chips ( Hersheys) OR 2 TSP Cinnamon but the chips are best!

Spray 10x16 baking sheet that has edges. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg & cinnamon if using that, all together. In a large mixing bowl cream the shortening the beat in the brown sugar. Add egg & vanilla & beat well.  Now add 1/2 of the dry ingredients & beat well. Peel, core & dice the apples & stir them into your cookie dough. Stir in the oatmeal & cinnamon chips & raisins. Stir well. Now add the remaining flour mixture & stir until all is incorporated. Spoon batter into your prepared pan. Take a spatula & smooth batter out spreading evenly. This looks like it will not be enough batter for the pan but as you work the batter to the edges & make it even it is exactly the right amount. Now pop the pan in the preheated oven & bake 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown ! Remove & cool then drizzle or DOLLOP the following icing over the cookies.  

AS A DROP COOKIE! Drop using a HEAPING TBS onto a greased sheet bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool & frost with the following frosting!

Butter Cream Drizzle:
3 TBS Butter Melted 
2 & 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
Dash of Salt
1 Tsp Vanilla
2 to 4 TBS Milk or enough to get a drizzle consistancy
Place sugar & salt in a bowl & stir.
Add melted butter & milk & stir with a whisk until all lumps are gone. I use the whisk to drizzle or GLUMP onto the bars using a swirl motion. Let cool & the drizzle will develop a hardened crust while still being soft under the crust! Once drizzle has set cut into LARGE SQUARES & eat!
