I was thrilled to get this after trying it at a potluck. Classic in my book.

Sweet but so good. I love the top as it gets a sugar crisp crumbly layer. If I knew for sure that I would get that same top, I would reduce the sugar by half a cup, but I will just drink a glass of cold milk instead of tampering with the recipe. I did use 1/4 cup nuts, and 1/4 cup coconut, and the 1/2 cup raisins... I will bring some to mom, nothing is too sweet for her, she will just say yum, and pop another in her mouth. I have made other buttertart bars but none with oatmeal, but again you would never know that was in there either, and again on the other recipes, I never got this layer on top that was crispy. Love it. Oh I must also say, they do not taste like Canadian butter tarts, but still a good bar. This is the same recipe as recipe #146691
