I was suprised how good these are. Adding oatmeal works well, it doesn't have the typical "made from a cake mix" flavor. Buttery, crumbly layers sandwiched with a layer of jam. Used apricot amaretto jam but any variety would work well. Would be nice for a pot luck. Thanks, crabbycakes, for sharing the recipe!
