Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 10 by 15 baking dish and set aside. Place all ingredients, except the egg and the jam, into a mixer & mix thoroughly. Remove half of the mixture and set aside. Blend the egg into the remaining mixture and press it into the prepared baking sheet. Bake until firm and lightly browned (about 10 minutes). Remove the crust from the oven and spread the jam evenly over the surface. Sprinkle the top with the remaining crumbly mixture. Bake 10 minutes until golden brown. Cool and cut into bars.
