I wonder if you could add PB too? Might be delicious. Also Kitty63 mentioned cinnamon graham crackers, that would be great too!!

These are delicious! Very simple recipe, too. I used cinnamon graham crackers in the topping because I thought it would taste wonderful with the raspberry filling. I think I was right! Thank you, Warren!

Delicious, quick and easy. Adding graham crackers to the topping is a great idea.I added a couple teaspoons of lemon juice to some homemade strawberry jam to thin it a bit and give it some extra tang. Limitless options for the jam filling. I'd like to try KristineChayes' idea to add spice to the crumbs.

These were very easy to make and very tasty. I like the addition of the graham cracker crumbs. It's fun to vary up the recipe by changing out the flavor of jam.

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!!
