Ingredients
  

Crumb layer:

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup vegetable or olive oil

Berry layer:

  • 1 250ml jar Haskap Highland Orchards Haskap Berry Preserve
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp corn starch

Cream Cheese layer:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, diced

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).  Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  • In a medium size bowl, whisk brown sugar, flour, oats and cinnamon together; gradually stir in oil until mixture is crumbly.  Press half of this crumb mixture into the prepared pan; set aside remaining crumbs for topping.
  • Bake in a preheated oven until firm, about 10 minutes.  Remove crumb crust from oven and cool slightly, leaving oven on.
  • Warm Haskap Berry Preserve in a small saucepan.  In a small dish, dissolve corn starch in lime juice; add mixture to Haskap Berry Preserve. Bring to a boil, stir gently and remove from heat.  Let thickened Preserve cool for a few minutes, then pour berry filling over crumb crust.
  • Sprinkle diced cream cheese pieces evenly over Haskap Preserve layer.  Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over cream cheese layer and press gently, if desired.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until crumb topping is golden and filling is bubbly, about 30 minutes.   When cool, cut in squares and enjoy!
