Pam's Random Recipes

I had a baby shower at work for a coworker today, and I was going to make an apple crisp thing my friend Amy (Hi Amy!!) emailed me earlier in the week, and then I forgot to get apples and watching Lost was more important than going to the store and well, I had these ingredients.

Here is my breakfast post for Pam's Random Recipes...

OATMEAL RASPBERRY BAR COOKIES

Ingredients
1/2 c. butter, soft
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1 c. rolled oats
3/4 c. fruit only seedless raspberry jam (I accidentally used Strawberry, oops)(still yummy though)

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8 inch square pan; line it with aluminum foil and then butter the foil. Mix all the ingredients together, except the jam (I used a pastry knife to blend it and make it crumbly). Press 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the jam to within 1/4 inch of the edge. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top and lightly press it into the jam. Bake 35 to 40 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting.


Makes 2 dozen.

wooohooo, I know what I'm doing this snowy afternoon! I hope I have rolled oats (we eat the steel cut) but I usually have rolled. Hmmmm..........

It is nice and snowy here today - too bad I don't have these ingredients or I would be making this now! Thanks for playing along! YUMMY!

Mmmmmm...if only I had the fruit preserves (I think the strawberry sounds better than the raspberry, btw). I'll definitely be trying these soon!
