  1. I omitted the nuts and used more oats (one person these were being served to has a nut allergy) and used blackberry jam. I wanted to jazz them up a bit so I made a simple confectioner's sugar glaze with lemon juice and a little of the same jam used in the filling once they - Read more ...
  2. I tried this recipe for the first time last weekend. I used a jar of homemade peach jam (given to us by my husband's grandma). I don't know why but as I was making it - I just didn't have high expectations. I figured most of it would go to waste since my husband isn't - Read more ...
  3. These are a delicious healthy snack..... I used all applesauce in place of the butter. It makes a soft bottom crust, then i mixed 1 - 1 1/2 cups more oats into the remainder of the mix, to make it more crumbly for the top. I used rasperry jam. They're just the right amount of - Read more ...
  4. I have made this recipe twice in one weekend. It is very good. Here are some tips. Use the 9 X 13 pan but you will need to reserve only about 3/4 C of crumb mixture- otherwise there won't be enough to pack into the pan. I reserved all of the walnuts for the topping. - Read more ...

  6. These were so delicious fast and easy to make. And it was great I got to use up some of the raspberry jam from our garden(we have more than we can shake a stick at). thank you so much for this recipe = i'll definitely be making it again!
  7. This came out WAY to crumbly and would not stay in squares. I basically served it like it was a cobbler or a crisp. The taste is ok but not the greatest will not make again.
  8. Yum! A little on the sweet side so it may benefit from a little less sugar and I found that I needed a whole cup of preserves rather than 3/4 cup. On the whole a very tasty recipe!
  9. YUM YUM!!! So quick and easy to make too! Great for a brunch or snack.
