I had a difficult time cutting these into bars. The preserves were soft on top, even though it browned. It was messy taking them out of the pan. I had to put the serving in a bowl like a cobbler.

These were awesome! The base dough is a little difficult to spread in the baking pan, but the end result was well worth it. I will make these again and again! Thank you Taste of Home
