Oatmeal Jam Bars

Ingredients
1 1/3
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/3
cup packed brown sugar
2
3 ounce package cream cheese, softened
3/4
cup seedless raspberry preserves
1
teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in oats, brown sugar, and lemon peel; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and butter. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed until mixture is crumbly. Measure 1 cup of the crumb mixture; set aside.
  3. Press the remaining crumb mixture onto the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine preserves and lemon juice. Carefully spread preserves mixture over hot crust. Sprinkle with the reserved 1 cup crumb mixture. Bake about 15 minutes more or until top is golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. Makes 36 bars.

From Our Kitchen:

Line your baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan. Grease foil; set pan aside. Once the bars have cooled, simply use the edges of the foil to lift the uncut bars out of the pan.
