Oh yes--buttery, crumbly and fruity. I love these things.
Sometimes...I make a whole pan of them, lovingly wrap up each of the cut squares in plastic wrap, and freeze them.
Then...then I eat one every afternoon, day after day, for a snack. And I'm so sad when they are finally gone.
I wait a week or two and then I make another batch, this time with a different fruit preserve, and start all over again. I never get tired of them--they are that good, or at least I think so. :)
I originally saw this recipe on The Pioneer Woman, and I have made them dozens of times. They are so easy! Really--you don't even need to get your mixer out. I do it all in the food processor!
Source: slightly adapted from The Pioneer Woman
(Get the printable here.)
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cup rolled oats (not the quick kind)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
14 Tbsp (that's 1 3/4 sticks) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
1 jar (about 12 oz.) fruit preserves*
Line an 8" square pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2" overhang. Butter or spray parchment with non-stick spray.
Put the first 7 ingredients in the food processor and pulse until everything is blended together. Add the butter cubes and pulse until blended and crumbly. Press 1/2 of the mixture into the prepared pan. Spread with fruit preserves. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture evenly over the preserves, and press lightly.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until light brown. Let cool completely, and then lift bars out of pan and cut into squares.
*Any fruit preserve will work. My favorites are apricot and blackberry.
