Love them. They They went very fast at my church's cookie walk. They went even faster at home. They are so easy to put together that even a 5 year-old can do it. So how can the directions be confusing?

I made these bars. I did a slight variation when I found out I had no eggs so instead I used some oil in place of the egg. It came out just fine. I also couldn't decide if I wanted to use grape jelly or strawberry preserve so I split it in half and did both. Kids loved it . Would make it again. I think next time I would try it with chocolate and maybe some processed banana.
