These bar cookies are easy to prepare because they are spread in a pan and baked all at one time. Cool before cutting. This is great for brunch & a warm cup of coffee. It is a very easy recipe and it looks like you spent hours preparing it. Found it on RecipeLand.com.

These are great! I used your recipe because it had less butter and sugar than some of the others. I made the crumb in my food processor adding regular oatmeal at the last and they turned out super. I also added about 2 Tbsp lemon juice to the jam because another recipe called for that. I will make these again and again and people will be impressed.
