Raspberry Cream Cheese Bars

These are good. I think you should make them. I think you could use blueberries or strawberries and they would be good too. (Sorry about the picture, taken with my phone at work).

Raspberry Cream Cheese Bars
base
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
2 c. flour
filling
1 pint of raspberries
1 small jar of raspberry preserves
8 oz. plus 4 oz. of cream cheese, softened
topping
1 stick of butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. flour
1 c. quick cook oats
First cream together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat in the flour and salt until a dough forms. Press it into a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. While it is baking make the topping in the same bowl. First cream the butter and sugar, then add in the flour and oats. In a separate small bowl, stir up the preserves, then add in the raspberries. Remove the bars from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes. While they are cooling, beat your cream cheese until it is smooth. After 10 minutes, spread the cream cheese on the crust. Then spread the berry mix on the cream cheese. Then drop the crumble mixture on top of that so that some of berries show through. Bake again for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting.
