Raspberry Bars

As a freshman at Baylor many years ago, I ate most of my meals in the dorm.  I don't remember a ton about my dining experience except this one dessert.... and of course - the freshman ten or even twenty that I gained.  It was probably eating too much of this dessert and too much Domino's Pizza. 

I was always excited to see this dessert when eating in Penland. I am sure this isn't the same recipe but I think I like this one even better. I am a huge chocolate fan but I LOVE these bars. The buttery crunch mixed with the tart raspberry preserves is a perfect combination. 

Of course, I have to give credit where credit is due.  I found this recipe in  The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook. 

Raspberry Bars

3/4 cup butter,softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats, uncooked
1 (10 oz) jar raspberry preserves

Beat butter at medium speed until creamy - gradually adding sugar, beating well.  Combine flour and next 3 ingredients and add to butter mixture, mixing well.  Press half of crumb mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Spread raspberry preserves over crumb mixture.  Sprinkle remaining half of crumb mixture over preserves.  Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.  Yield - 32 bars.
