I have made 4 batches of these bars within the last 2 days! I used Raspberry Jam in two of the batches and Apple Pie Jam in the other two. I used chopped up Almonds instead of Pecans....Everyone loved them..in fact, most loved the recipe with Apple Pie Jam instead of the Raspberry. ;-) But both are AWESOME! I have also made these bars using Pecans! Lovely! -justmeterri
