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.

Yum... Made these with my homemade grape jelly! Doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan. Hubby said it could of used more jelly ~ I used a whole pint jar! But this is coming from an man that could eat the jelly out of the jar with a spoon :)

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.
