Fruit –Filled Oatmeal Bars

Fruit –Filled Oatmeal Bars


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup butter
1 21-ounce can pie filling or 1 ½ cups fruit preserves

1.                  Preheat oven to 350°F.  Grease a 9 x 9 x 2 inch or 11 x 7 x 1 ½ inch baking pan (see tip, page 263).  In a medium bowl combine the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, and baking soda.  Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Measure ½ cup of the crumb mixture; set aside.
2.                  Press remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of prepared baking pan.  If using pie filling coarsely snip or chop any large pieces of fruit.  Spread desired filling over crust.  Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is golden.  Cool in pan on a wire rack.  Cut into bars.
