Oatmeal Raspberry Bars

I made these this past week and they were a hit - try them with the ingredients listed below or substitute with the fruit and jam of your choice. So good!

10 tblsp cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for the pan
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teasp salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
1 cup fresh raspberries

- Heat oven to 375. Butter an 8 inch square baking pan. in food processor, pulse the flour, sugar and salt to combine. Add the butter and pulse until the dough comes together. Transfer to a bowl and gently knead in the oats.
- Press all but 1/2 cup of the dough into the prepared pan. Spread the  jam evenly over the dough, leaving a 1/4 inch border around the edges. Scatter the raspberries over the jam and sprinkle with the remaining dough.
- Bake until the edges are golden, 25 to 28 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes before slicing.
