I'd never made anything quite like this, and I thought it turned out pretty nicely. I did find that the bars held together well. It wasn't a very picture-perfect presentation, but the taste was ...

It was pretty good. It only needs a quarter cup of butter in the bottom layer, I poured butter off of it when I took it out of the oven. I also used apricot jam instead of raspberry

I was quite disappointed by this recipe. The dough should have less butter and more sugar or other flavoring. I agree with the other reviewers who said that the end result did not look very good...

This is an easy recipe to make, but I found it to be much more like a raspberry bread. I would add a cup of sugar to the dough to make it sweeter.

i think this recipe calls for too little dough and too much fruit. i would add more flour and cut down on the butter in the dough. but the topping was perfect! the bars themselves still came out...

I decided to try this recipe during an ice storm, as I had all of the ingredients needed on hand. This was easy and good. I thought the presentation was nice; the bars retain their shape well....
