These are smelling really great right now! Will let you know what they taste like. These were very tasty. And so simple. Everyone at my house likes them. I like them cause the ingredients are ones that I probably have on hand anyway.

OATMEAL-RASPBERRY COOKIES

1/2 cup Butter -- Room Temperature
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
1 cup Flour
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Rolled Oats
3/4 cup Seedless Raspberry Jam

Heat the oven to 350F. Butter an 8" square pan, set aside. Mix all ingredients together except the jam. Press 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the jam to within 1/4" of the edge.
Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top and lightly press it into the jam. Bake 35 to 40 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting into 2 x 1-1/2-inch bars.

Makes about 2 dozen bars.
