"This was very quick and easy to put together. I confess I used more berries, only cause I had them on hand-and put this in a 7x11 pan because of it. It was very nice, and a keeper. I liked the crisp texture of the crumb topping, and the base stayed crisp also."

"I love recipes like this! Versatile and foolproof. I don't usually change a recipe when trying for the first time; and I am one to save it until I go to the store to buy the called-for ingredients, but, this time, I had just come home from the store and really wanted to try this recipe. Sooooo, I made do with what I had on hand.....white cake mix, cherry preserves and frozen cherries. Added a splash of Chambord (felt so creative!) and it was wonderful! Thanks so much for inspiring me!"
