    MA HIKER's Note:

    A lovely raspberry-fruity bar made all the better with the addition of roasted pecans. When I buy a bag of pecans I roast them in the oven and store them in freezer so they are ready to use for any recipe!

      These were delicious! They baked up perfectly into nice bars with the texture and flavor of raspberry "fig newtons". The only difference in the recipe from mine was that I could not crumble the dough on top as stated since it was too wet- so I spooned it on and that turned out ok. Thanks for participating in the contest and I wish you the best of luck!

      It was ok. My kids didn't like it much, and I didn't go back for seconds. I think with some adjustments, I might like this dish. I think it needed more of the jam.

      These were good - I would like to try again with a few changes for personal preference. I loved the roasted pecan flavor. Next time I prepare these, I will add whole grain flour in place of the all-purpose and omit the egg from the bottom layer. I will also use a little less buttter and more preserves, as we really love the fruity middle layer! Prepared and reviewed for RSC#11, Feb. 2008.
