A Little Recipe...

In the previous post I showed you a picture of the squares I made. I thought you might like the recipe, but I will warn you...you'll never be able to stop at just one!
 
 
 
Fruity Oatmeal Squares
 
Crumb mixture:
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. quick oats
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. almond extract
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
Filling:
2 c. of any kind of preserves you like.
1/3 c. flaked coconut
1/3 c. sliced almonds
 
Preheat oven to 350*. Place all crumb mix ingredients in large bowl. Mix until well combined. Press half of this mixture into the bottom of a greased 9" x 13" baking pan. Spread preserves to within 1/2" of edge. Cover top with remaining crumb mixture and press down lightly. Sprinkle top with coconut and almonds. Bake for 22 - 27 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
 
 
I used raspberry jam in these squares, but I have also made this recipe using peach, strawberry rhubarb and raspberry rhubarb. All of them were delicious! They go especially well with a hot cup of tea and good company.
 
Blessings,
