Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º Fahrenheit (180º Celsius).

  3. Measure out 2 cups of this mixture. Leave the rest in the bowl, and set it aside.
  4. Take the 2 cups of the mixture and press it into the bottom of a square (8" X 8") pan coated with shortening or nonstick spray. You can use your hands or a spoon. Make sure you cover the entire bottom of the pan!

  6. Take the mixture that was left in the bowl, and spread it over the strawberry jam. Press it down lightly.
