Icelandic Oatmeal and Blueberry Pie

This is an old icelandic classic called "Hjónabandssæla" which means "happy merriage". I do not know if this is the secret of a happy merriage but it sure is tasty...:) Mein frau Rakel is the creator of this recipe so don´t forget to praise her in your comments.
200g butter, room temperature
170g oatmeal
170g plain flour
100g caster sugar
1tsp bicarbonate
blueberry jam

Preheat the oven to 200˚C.

Add the butter, oatmeal, flour, sugar and bicarbonate into a large bowl and work together with your hands…..or you can add all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until you get a fine sandy textured dough.

Take 2/3 of the dough and push into a buttered cake dish with your hands.

Spread the blueberry jam over and then just sprinkle the rest of the dough over the jam.
Bake for 30 minutes in the middle shelf.
