DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • With a pastry blender or two knives use scissor style, cut in butter or margarine until coarse crumbs form.
  • With a fork stir in corn syrup and egg just until mixed.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup batter.
  • Press remaining batter into a 9x9x2-inch baking pan.
  • spread with jam.
  • Stir 2 tablespoons flour into the reserved batter.
  • If preparing a lattice add a couple tablespoons of water - one at a time - to make the dough easy to roll out. If you are dropping the dough by spoonfulls then just evenly scatter the top "crust" over the jam for a "spotty" look and bake.
  • On a floured surface roll out to 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Cut into 1/4-inch wide strips.
  • Lattice strips over jam.
  • Bake in 375-degree oven 30 minutes, or until set. Cool.
  • Cut into bars. Serving size is really up to you - cut into as many bars as you want.
