Power Bars

3/4 cup butter or 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 21-ounce can cherry filling and topping
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Put butter and brown sugar in a large mixing well. 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; mix on low speed until crumbly. Spread two-thirds of the
oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 13 W 9 W 2-inch baking
pan. Press down to make a firm layer.

Puree cherry filling with an electric blender or food processor
until smooth. Pour puried 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 oat
layer; spread evenly. Top with remaining oat mixture. Bake in a
preheated 350: oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Let
cool before cutting into bars.
