Blackberry Jam Bars
Serves: 16 servings
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1½ cups Blackberry Jam (recipe follows)
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Spray a 10-inch square cast-iron skillet with baking spray with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together flour, oats, melted butter, sugars, baking powder, salt, and zest until moistened and crumbly. Press two-thirds of oat mixture into bottom of prepared skillet. Spread Blackberry Jam onto prepared crust. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture.
  3. Bake until jam is bubbly and topping is golden brown, about 35 minutes, loosely covering with foil during last 5 minutes of baking to prevent excess browning, if necessary. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
