Caramel-y Oat Squares

  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups rolled oats

Mix everything together as you go, in the order given.  Press down the resulting mixture in a well-buttered 9” x 9” baking pan/glass baking dish.  Bake in a 400F oven for approximately 11 minutes, until golden (check often to prevent over browning or burning).  As soon as you take them from the oven, cut them into squares (we use a pastry scraper to “score” them right down to the bottom of the pan).  The original recipe says to remove them while still hot, but we find this unnecessary because we butter the pan very well.

If you want to make them very crispy, use a cookie sheet and spread the mixture thinner.  Adjust the time.
