    These are so good. Fast and easy too. They are very versatile, any jam will work but our personal favorite is raspberry.

      YUM and they couldn't be easier! i made these as written using the 11x17" pan. i was worried they'd be too thin but they were great! if you like a thicker bar they'd definitely work in a 9x13 too. i used probably 3/4 of the crumb mixture on the base to get good coverage and there was still plenty for the topping. also only used 1C of jam as i was using homemade that hadn't set as firm as i'd liked, i was worried it'd make the bars gooey but it turned out fine and next time i'll use the full 2C. i baked them for 5min longer as my oven is notorious for under cooking things but next time i may not cook them quite as much as they were almost crunchy, but i have no doubt that was my hated oven's fault. thank for a great, quick recipe that i'll definitely make often!

      I made this with a little ground flaxseed thrown in, and Mixed Spice (http://www.recipezaar.com/Mixed-Spice-a-Sweet-Spice-Mixture-94921). I first tried it in a mini-muffin tin with different jams, but I wouldn't do that again. The different consistencies of the jams caused some to cook faster than others, and I couldn't get them out without losing the shape. I then did some in a pan. The flavors are delicious, and if it's too crumbly you can eat it as a cobbler with whipped cream or ice cream. YUM!

      I made these for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party. I thought they were a little dry and thought that I may not serve them at the party, but I cut a piece and tried it. I'm glad that I did, they were delicious and not as crumbly as I thought they would be. I used my homemade jam, Blueberry Rhubarb (Bluebarb) Jam. These bars disappeared fast! I will definetly be making these again. Thanks for an easy recipe.
