I used a triple fruit jam for this but any flavor will due. The nuts may be varied as well. Some nice combos would be: apricot jam and almonds; raspberry jam and hazelnuts.

How To Make

    Line a 7 1/2 x 11 inch baking dish with foil, letting foil extend just a bit beyond edge of pan. Butter foil. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

    Cream butter and sugar. Add egg. Stir in flour and salt. Pat 2/3 of dough in pan. Bake 10 minutes.
  • 3
    Spread partially cooked dough with jam.

    Mix nuts and oatmeal with remaining dough. Crumble evenly over jam. This won't completely cover the jam. Bake 35 more minutes.
