"Always looking for simple recipes and am glad I stumbled upon this one! I only cook for myself, so small recipes work best. I made this with no sugar added cherry preserves and Splenda, and the bars came out beautifully. Yum!!"

"Thank you Warren (!!!) - just made a batch following directions to a T and they are excellent. I love making jams and constantly look for new ways to use them. A bonus - this recipe lends itself to switching up - both in the type of jam and the crumble (next time I'll add toasted pecans or maybe toasted coconut to the topping). This is a keeper!"

"I made a double batch of the Oatmeal Jam Squares this afternoon and they are delicious! I used a 9" X 13" pan, used peach preserves, and added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the crumb mixture. Excellent! I'll try the raspberry jam next time around :)"

"Way to go, Warren. Yes, you could use other jams, but nothing can equal raspberry in this totally YUM recipe. My granddaughter is going to learn to bake with recipes like this. Thank you, and keep on baking."

"The only problem I had with these is that I didn't press the bottom crust firmly enough and they were quite crumbly. But scrumptious enough to pick up every little bit."
