OH MY GOD!!! I made these as part of a friends wedding buffet, and they were SCARFED DOWN!!! Also, I included them in my holiday cookie tray for work, and they were the first ones gone. Great easy recipe--reminds me of my Hungarian grandmothers Linzer cookies! :-) A MUST TRY!!!!
I made this for thanksgiving dinner and two peple threw up. It could have been my turkey, but I doubt it.
Everyone loved these. The second baking took a
little longer than the recipe indicates.
I've also tried this using raspberry preserves.
Great easy recipe.
These are great!!! I did change the recipe a bit though. I did half with the apricot preserves and half with strwberry preserves, Iwas curious to see how it came out with something other then apricot preserves. Well both rocked, I liked the strawberry better and hubby preferred the apricot. Win, win! Can't wait to try with cherry or raspberry preserves! I also put an oatmeal, brown sugar crumb topping instead of the nuts on top. I will cook the crust longer next time. WARNING!!!! If you arn't a fan of very sweet foods than this is not the recipe for you.
EXCELLENT!! These are so incredible - people just rave over these when I make them. Thank you Marian for this delicious cookie bar!!
P.S. Not sure what the last lady did...but I bet money is was the turkey NOT the cookies.
This is a keeper. I, too, had to bake the 2nd go-around much longer, as the crust was too soft. But the end result was worth the extra time. I used toasted almonds in place of walnuts, as hubby is allergic to walnuts. And, I used fresh apricots mixed w/sugar blended in a food processor and cooked for 5 minutes in lieu of preserves.
These were very good. I did add a pinch of salt to the flour mixture and I used non-stick spray to prepare the baking pan. Think I'd prefer to toast the nuts and just put them on the cut bars instead of sprinkling them on the top and THEN cutting.
These were really really good. Made my own quick preserves to put on top...didn't have any nus so I put coconut on top...really yummy...like shortbread with an apricot/coconut topping...will do again with other toppings
Have tried with lingonberry preserves with a oatmeal/brown sugar toppng...these came out wonderful...tart yet sweet...perfect for a Norwegian potluck!
