TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:9 servings


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

  • 1. In a food processor, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar and walnuts; cover and process until nuts are finely chopped. Add butter; cover and pulse just until mixture is crumbly. Press into an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned.
