|These are so good you will not want to stop with just one! I tasted while still slightly warm and oh my gosh! So so delicious.|
|Seriously delicious just might be an understatement!|
2 sticks cold butter, reserve 2 tablespoons for dotting the top and cut the other 1 3/4 sticks into dice size chunks
1 1/2 C. flour
1 1/2 C. oats plus 2 T. oats, reserved for final topping (I prefer old fashioned but quick will work as well.)
1 C. brown sugar packed
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
12 ounces strawberry jam (Or whatever flavor of jam you prefer.)
Butter and flour a 9" x 13" baking dish and set side. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Dump 1/2 of the oat and flour into the prepared pan and pat down with a rubber spatula or the bottom of a small measuring cup. Spread the jam evenly all across the bottom crust. Top with the remaining meal like oat and flour mixture and pat it evenly and lightly until you cover the jam.
Yield 24 bar cookies.
