Oatmeal Apple Butter Bars

I tried a recipe from RecipeZaar for Oatmeal Apple Butter Bars. I wanted to find a way to use up some more of the apple butter I canned last year and these had good ratings and sounded tasty. They are very good. Very crumbly, but very good. I love the oats in them, though Kevin didn't. Carson liked them quite a bit, too.

Oatmeal Apple Butter Bars

2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened to room temperature
1 cup apple butter

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Add butter and beat with electric mixer on low until mixture is crumbly. Pat half of the mixture, about 2 cups into baking pan. Spread apple butter evenly over crumb layer. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over apple butter and press down gently. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden. Transfer pan to wire rack and cool completely. Cut into 16 bars.
