Recipe Tips

- Try strawberry, red currant or apricot jam instead of raspberry jam.

- To make ahead, prepare bars as directed; do not prepare drizzle. Freeze bars up to 1 month. Thaw. Combine powdered sugar and enough milk for desired drizzling consistency in bowl. Drizzle over bars.

Delicious but sloppy! It's hard to keep the crumb mixture on top intact when cutting and eating. However, they're VERY tasty. So maybe you won't mind the crumbs. But be forewarned if eating one while wearing your favorite outfit!
