Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Matthew: While searching through my Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Baking cookbook, I happened upon a recipe for Black Cherry-Oatmeal Crunch Squares.  I had made a note on 3.3.07 that I made the recipe and substituted 1/3 c. peanut butter for a half stick of butter and used a combination of apricot and strawberry jams.  This time around, I still used the peanut butter and tried Bonne Maman blackberry preserves which worked out really well.  I shared the bars at work and brought some to Chicago for my weekend trip.  They were a big hit!  And, as you can see in the picture, I had a little left over after filling the pan, so I made an individual serving for myself in a tartlet pan.  It went perfectly with vanilla ice cream.
