- 1 3/4 sticks Butter, cold, cut into pieces
- 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats, quick or regular
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 jar Strawberry Preserves
Preheat the oven to 350.
Butter a 9 x 13 or 8 x 10 baking dish.
Mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt together.
Now mix in the butter with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Gently pour in half this mixture into the pan and pat lightly to pack it a little tightly.
Spoon strawberry preserves over the surface. Keep it even.
With a dinner knife, carefully spread it around.
Sprinkle the other half of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly once again.
Bake until light golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and let cool in pan.
Cut into squares and serve. ENJOY!
