Made these for one of our Christmas desserts and got great reviews! I sprayed my pan and they did stick and burn a little bit where the jam touched the pan, but the bottoms didn't stick at all and came out really nicely! Very sweet and delicious! Thanks fo posting!

Outstanding! Update - made these again today. Not sure what happened but they totally stuck to the pan. The first time I made them I had no problem. I will definitely grease the pan next time - what a mess I have here.

Bars came out just as in Calee's photo - an absolutely deliciously different bar that I can't wait to serve to family and friends. Made as posted for a lovely addition to the dessert tray. Thank you for sharing.
