Jam Bars

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 jar jam, any flavor *
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°. Line a 9x13 "brownie" pan with foil and grease (I use cooking spray)
  2. Mix together the sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon.
  3. Cut in the butter until it's reached the large clump stage
  4. Add the oats and rub. Literally put a glove on and mix with your hands, squishing and rubbing until it cam make large clumps that hold together.
  5. Place 4 cups of this mixture in the bottom of the pan and press down until it's level and solid
  6. Spread the entire jar of jam over the top of this layer to within 1/4 in of the edges
  7. Sprinkle the remaining dough over the top and press lightly
  8. Bake for 35-40 min or until golden brown
  9. Let cool then cut, preferably with a bench knife
Makes 24 cookies.

* You can use any flavor of jam, but I've found that the tarter jams like raspberry or four fruits work best.

Recipe found at and modified. Not a clue where I found the picture, sorry.
