This recipe made tender, jam-filled bars that we enjoyed.
I'm giving these 3 stars because they were super quick and easy to make, and quite tasty. I thought about giving it less stars, though, because the measurement seemed wrong to me. There is no way it was going to fit a 9 x 13 pan, I had to put it into a smaller square pan. Also, they tasted way too salty to me. Still, these were good, and I'd like to try them with different types of preserves and maybe mess around with the measurements a bit. Thanks for sharing.
