"Made a double batch with half oil and half butter, and used one batch worth of preserves and one bag of defrosted frozen raspberries. Made in a 1/2 sheet pan with nonstick reynolds wrap for church. An hour in the fridge is necessary to get clean cuts."

"Followed the recipe exactly and they were delicious. The only thing I would recommend is to "pat down" the crumb mixture into the jam before putting back in the oven; this will allow the crumb mixture to adhere and thus avoid losing all that yummy flavor."

"I tried this for a Bunco group and these were a big hit ! 3 recipe requests immediately! Leftovers were served the next night to dinner guests who raved about them. The only drawback , in my opinion, is that the topping is so crumbly it's very difficult to pick up one to eat. Maybe I just didn't get the crumbs small enough. I'm making these again for a cookie exchange"
