STRAWBERRY OATMEAL BARS (Adapted from Ree Drummond)

1 3/4 sticks salted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for greasing pan
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
One 10 to 12-ounce jar strawberry preserves (raspberry preserves would be amazing too!)

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 strawberry 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.

All cut up and ready to go to my tailgate!
