Ingredients:  
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 (14 oz.) can whole berry cranberry sauce or 1Ĺ cups homemade cranberry sauce

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the dry ingredients. Then keep rubbing until you canít really find any butter in the mixture anymore because your fingers have melted it quite a bit and it has mixed in so well into the flour and oats. Spoon three-quarters of the oat mixture into an ungreased 13″x 9″ cake pan. Press down on it firmly everywhere to form a firm layer that evenly covers the bottom of the pan. Add the cranberry sauce in dollops and spread it in a thin layer over the oat layer. Sprinkle with the remaining oat mixture. Press down lightly on the oats so that they adhere to the wet cranberry sauce a bit. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Note that the topping will not change color but it is still done. Allow cooling in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into 8 strips along the length of the pan and 3 strips along the width yielding 24 bars. Use a spatula to remove the bars from the pan.
