Review This Recipe
Baked these bars using homecanned raspberry jam and raspberry striped morsels-huge huge success! These are fabulous tasting-the almonds that toasted on the top of the struesel were especially great. Perfect amount of fruit. Since I personally thought this was too sweet I may try using spreadable fruit next.
