Oatmeal Peach Cookie Bar #Recipe for your next cookie exchange

Headed to a cookie exchange this holiday season? Here is a super yummy, rather impressive, yet simple and easy recipe to get you through your next cookie exchange

Preheat your oven to 350F

1.5 cups flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup peach puree
dash of vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter

Start out by greasing a 9x11 baking dish. Once greased, set aside.

Combine all of the above ingredients, then separate your dough into two parts. Take half, and press it into the bottom of your pan. Now, spoon on and spread out your jam. I chose a wildberry jam, but you could certainly use an orange marmalade, or standard strawberry jam.

Next, press the second half of your dough to make the top crust. The dough may be a bit sticky, so flour your fingers as necessary, or use the back of a slightly greased metal spoon.

Bake for 18 minutes.

Here's a trick to make getting the bars out of the pan super easy. When you take them out of the oven, cut them immediately, then allow them to cool completely in the pan.

These bars make a great school snack, are perfect for cookie exchanges and holiday parties.

Yield: 20 bars
