Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Oatmeal Cherry Crumble Bars

This makes a big ole pan of goodness, right here. These easy bars are perfect for a snack or breakfast or to throw in a lunch. Warmed, with a big scoop of ice cream would be a little bit of heaven, I think. If you've of a mind, stir a dash of almond flavoring into the cherries before adding it to the crust. Then sprinkle some sliced almonds on the top crust before baking! So delish!

Oatmeal Cherry Crumble Bars

1 21-ounce can cherry pie filling
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cup rolled oats
1 cup butter ~ softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.

Combine brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and rolled oats.

Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until crumbly.

Press 3-4 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Spread the cherry pie filling almost to the edge.

Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top, and press lightly.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in preheated oven, or until lightly browned.
