Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Are you ready for a little something sweet to go with your cup of tea?  

Mr. Snowman is making a special delivery on his little red sled. He's bringing y'all some Raspberry Oatmeal Bars that he just made. 

Oh, it looks like some "snow" got on the bars. 
Would you like to try one?
Before I forget, let me give you the recipe:

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars
1 1/2 cups oats
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 sticks butter
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1  12 oz. jar of seedless raspberry preserves...about 1 1/2 cups.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch rectangular pan.
Mix together the butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Press half the oat mixture into the prepared pan. Spread with the  preserves. Sprinkle the other half of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly. Bake until light brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, and then cut into squares. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for the "snow".

Oh, yum!  Sorry, I just had to take a bite.
Hope you like them.

Sledding on over to these parties:

The Tablescaper ~ Seasonal Sundays
The Dedicated House ~ Make It Pretty Monday
Savvy Southern Style ~ Wow Us Wednesday
My Turn for Us ~ Freedom Fridays

These little oatmeal bars look delicious!!! I love raspberries!!!
How cute to have yours "freshly" delivered on the sled with a "sprinkling" of fresh SNOW! "Mr. SNOWman" is darling!!!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

I love raspberries but not the seeds...I noticed that you underlined seedless! I've pinned this for later. Hope you are enjoying a relaxing January. I am having a hard time getting my groove back after taking some time off for Christmas. Hopefully inspiration will hit soon or I'm in trouble! Have a good week...Ann
