Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. In a
large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the shortening,
brown sugar, peanut butter, milk and vanilla extract until well blended.
Add the egg; beat just until blended. In a mediu bowl, combine the flour,
baking soda and salt. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture
to the shortening mixture; mix just until blended. Press 2/3 of the dough
in teh bottom of the prepared pan in an even layer. Spread the jam evenly
over the dough to within 1/4-inch of the sides. Combine the remaining
dough with the oats; drop by spoonfuls onto the jam layer. The dough will
be stiff. Press lightly to even out the dough layer. Bake for 20 to 25
minutes, or until the edges and streusel topping are lightly browned. Cool
completely in the pan on a wire rack. To serve, cut into bars.
