  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter, then mix it with the flour and 2 Tbsp. brown sugar. Press into a greased 9-inch square pan (I prepare the pan with Wilton's "Cake Release"). Bake for 15 minutes, until a very light brown. Meanwhile in another bowl, beat the eggs together until blended. Mix in the rest of the topping ingredients, and pour the mixture evenly over the partially baked base. Return pan to the oven and bake for another 20 minutes. Cool thoroughly before cutting into squares.

  2. This recipe was adapted from one found in an old local Presbyterian Church cookbook, hence the name. It is widely known that the Scots put oatmeal in just about everything—I think they even invented it!
