Oatmeal Raspberry Bar Cookies


I was recently given some raspberries from the first picking of the season, then needed a recipe to make some kind of dessert for a barbecue. This one was pretty easy and not bad.


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 used a cup of fresh raspberries in the food processor, and didn't remove the seeds)

Line an 8 inch square pan with aluminum foil and then spray the foil with cooking spray or butter. Mix all the ingredients together, except the raspberries. Press 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the fruit 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 at 350 and allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting.
