Boysenberry Bars Recipe
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1-1/2 cups rolled oats (not the quick kind)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
14 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
1 jar (about 12 ounces) fruit preserves (any fruit preserves will work)
Line a 8″ square pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2″ overhang. Butter or spray parchment with non-stick spray.
Put the first7 ingredients in the food processor and pulse until everything is blended together. Add the butter cubes and pulse until blended and crumbly. Press 1/2 of the mixture into the prepared pan. Spread with fruit preserves. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture evenly over the preserves, and press lightly.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until light brown. Let cool completely, and then lift bars out of pan and cut into squares.
LOOK! At the buttery crumbly top!!!
