  • 3/4 cup margarine
  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats, uncooked
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry filling and topping
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ tablespoon of cherry juice concentrate
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Put butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed 3 to 4 minutes, or until well mixed. Combine flour, oats and baking soda. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat on low speed until crumbly. Spread two-thirds of the oats mixture into the bottom of an un-greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Press down to make a firm layer. Put cherry filling and cherry juice concentrate in an electric blender or food processor container; purée until smooth. Pour puréed cherry filling into a medium saucepan. Combine granulated sugar and cornstarch; stir into cherry filling. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until mixture is thick and bubbly. Stir in almond extract. Pour cherry mixture over oats layer; spread evenly. Top with remaining oats mixture. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool before cutting into bars.
