"I found the original recipe on the Taste of Home site, which was sent into them by a gentleman by the name of Warren S. Patrick of Townshend,Vermont. And as much as I liked the way Mr.Patrick made them, a few changes were made to the recipe. I want to thank Shadows1 for helping me come up with the name for this recipe.Posted to " ZAZZ " on 12/18/15. " Keep Smiling :)"

I love oatmeal and am often looking for something sweet that is simple to make and not a traditional dessert. This recipe is my type of recipe. I used my favorite jelly, black raspberry. It's actually a bit too sweet for me with this jelly, so next time I want to try it with fig jam. I think that would be perfect. Will be trying this again as the oatmeal top/bottom is fabulous. Oh...I did cut down the butter to 4 tbsp...subbed applesauce to keep the moisture level the same. UPDATE: Changed my mind...not too sweet! After about 24 hours, maybe the sweetness mellowed. I worked on an 8x8 pan for a week...perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert!
