    I had the falling apart problem. Also, I thought that they were dry.

    If you put just a little more than half of the crumbs on the bottom, the crust holds up beautifully on slicing--none of this falling apart business. I did use regular butter because I didn't have any light margarine. I cut the brown sugar in half because I find the most recipes benefit from this; this one did too. I used peach preserves, and it was plenty sweet enough. Very delicious!
