Jam Bars

This week's cookie of the week is a day early! We have places to go this week, so I made cookies to take with us.  A small batch, just enough to take along in the car.

Jam Bars

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup jam.  Any kind will do, what ever you want
Preheat oven to 350
Grease an 8 inch square pan.
Combine brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and rolled oats.
Rub in butter with your hands until mixture is crumbly. Like little peas.
Press 2 cups of the butter into the bottom of the prepared pan

Top with the jam. Then sprinkle the rest of the crumbles on the top
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow to cool before cutting into bars.

Just enough to take on a short day trip!
