Was very good, not a problem I love baking and I always add little more to it to make enough for the bottom when it calls for a bottom crust.
I made this recipe exactly as directed and they are just wonderful. I told my sister, the health nut, and she made them the next day with substitutions as follows: unsweetened coconut, no pecans, polaner all fruit instead of jam (she used apricot) and about 1/2 of a 12 oz. bag of semi-sweet mini morsels. She raved about them as well. Great recipe!
I don't think the butter should be "soft" in order to make crumbs with the flour and sugar. I did not have enough "crumbs" to spread half into the bottom of a 9x13 pan, so I switched to a 9x9 pan. I barely had enough "crumbs" to cover this one. They did not turn out well at all. I was greatly disappointed as I was making these for my annual Christmas Party for my staff this Saturday. I was so disgusted with the outcome I threw the whole recipe book away.
Very easy to make, and very different. Not sticky sweet as most holiday treats. Might use strawberry next as well.
I would agree that the crust was a bit bland the first time I made this, so the second time I made it, I increased the brown sugar by 1/4 cup and decreased the flour by 1/4 cup. That made all the difference in the world. I also experimented with strawberry jam instead of the raspberry, and that was a mistake. The tartness of the raspberry really makes this recipe come alive!
This recipe is awesome. Made an adjustment after reading the comment about the crust being bland. I used self-rising flour and left out the baking powder. Seems all it needed was a little salt. I will definitely add this to my collection of dessert bar recipes!
These are good. I also used strawberry jam instead of raspberry. I had to bake them for 45 minutes. I brought them to a potluck and they were a hit. (I also got 48 servings by cutting them a bit smaller.)
It was gone the next day
Maybe I did something wrong but I didn't have the same yummy results as others. The filling was good but the crust and topping seemed blnd. Maybe not enough brown sugar?
These were a hit a bible study bowling night. I made half the pan with strawberry jam and the other with raspberry jam. Also, I used light margarine, 3 squares of chocolate and 3/4 C brown sugar. The jam was the only difficult thing. It took quite a bit of time to spread. One must have patience for this one. :) Good recipe, though.
