Vintage Baking Recipes: Hip Padders

I love the name of these Chocolate Bars found in one of my many spiral bound vintage cook books.

 Aunt Pat's Bars or HIP PADDERS

I found that there are many variations of this bar recipe - just look up Hip Padders

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1 1/2 to 2 cups oatmeal

6 oz chocolate chips
6 oz butterscotch chips
1 T butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts

Cream butter, brown sugar, and vanilla.  Add egg and beat until fluffy.  Add sifted flour, salt, and soda.  Then add oatmeal.  Reserve 1 cup dough for topping.  Press rest into 9x13 inch pan.

For Filling:  Blend Chips, butter, sweetened condensed milk, and salt in heavy saucepan until melted.  Remove from heat and add vanilla and nuts.  Pour over dough.  Drop reserve dough by dabs onto filling.   Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
