#3367 - Raspberry Oat Bars

(by Shirley McNevich)

1/2 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup Quaker quick oats
1/2 cup softened butter
3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

In a bowl add brown sugar, flour, baking soda, softened butter, salt and oats--mix with a pastry blender to make crumbs. Cover the inside of an 8 x 8 cake pan with foil, then grease the foil. Dump 2 cups of the crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan and press it out evenly. Spread the raspberry jam over the crumb mixture (leaving 1/2" edge all the way around the pan with NO jam--if you get the jam too close to the edges it will leak down the sides and burn). Sprinkle the rest of the crumb mixture over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Cool completely. Cut into bars or squares. Optional--drizzle your favorite cream cheese icing over the top before cutting.
