Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Recipe

  • 1 pkg yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 cu. butter or margarine
  • 2 1/2 c. quick-cooking oats
  • 1 c. raspberry jam*
  • 1 T. water

Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt butter. Combine dry cake mix and oats in a large bowl; stir in melted butter until mixture is crumbly. Measure half of this mixture (about 3 c.) into a greased 9"x13"x2" pan; press firmly to cover the bottom. Combine jam and water; spread evenly over crumb mixture. Cover with remaining crumbs; pat firmly to make top even. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes; top should be very light brown. Cool completely and cut into bars. Yield: about 4 dozen bars. Enjoy!

* Freezer jam works great!
