1/2 cups Butter (should be at room temperature)
1/2 cups Brown sugar (preferrably the light brown kind)
1 cups White flour
1/4 teaspoons Baking soda
1/8 teaspoons Salt
1 cups Rolled oats
3/4 cups Raspberry jam (seedless if possible)
Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees. Grease an 8 inch square pan with butter, setting aside. Mix all of the ingredients together, but the jam. Press approximately 2 cups of dough mixture in to the bottom of the buttered pan. Spread jam all the way to 1/4 inch from edge of pan. Sprinkle remaining dough mixture over top of jam, lightly pressing it in. Bake 35 – 40 min. Allow to cool on a wire rack before slicing into 2 inch x 1-1/2 inch bars.
