Strawberry Crumble Bars

Well I barely got in the second recipe this month.  I was having trouble deciding on one.  I had a whole list of recipes I couldn't wait to start trying that involve the grill and mine decided to die.  So I decided on a dessert and will be taking the majority to the office so I won't be tempted ot eat them all.   I got this one from the Bisquick cookbook.

Strawberry Crumble Bars

2 c. bisquick
1 c. quick-cooking oats
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. margarine or butter, softened
1 c. strawberry spreadable fruit jam or preserves

Heat oven to 400°.  Grease square pan, 9x9x2 inches.  Mix bisquick, oats and brown sugar in large bowl.  Cut in margarine, using fork or pastry blender, until mixture is crumbly. 
Press half of the crumbly mixture in pan.  Spread spreadable fruit over crumbly mixture to within 1/4 inch of edges.  Top with remaining crumbly mixture; press gently into fruit.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until light brown; cool.  For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. 

Drizzle with melted chocolate if you like.  I didn't have any in the house so I didn't do that tonight.

I totally admit this was my dinner tonight.  I had three of bars, one for myself, one for Beth and one for Maddy.
