Correction: MY VERSION of this is 5 stars! This recipe, as is, I can't speak for, but I was appalled to see that there were no oats in the recipe, and I would starve before using (a whole cup of!!) shortening in a baked good. So here's mine:
Sub the cup of white sugar with 1/2 c brown, 1/4 cup white. I really try to at least HALVE the sugar in any recipe I make. I was afraid to do that having never tried the original recipe, so kept it to 3/4 but I may reduce it the next time I make these. (I also left sugar out of the filling completely, but I like my fruit fillings tart rather than sweet.)
In place of shortening (gross!!), 1/2 c butter and 1/2 cup of coconut oil (or any ratio you like - I use coconut oil where I can. Why wouldn't you? It's a most delicious and ultimately healthier fat, and the consistency is similar to shortening.) Baked goods require butter and, in my house, coconut oil.
Replace the 3 cups of flour with 2 C flour and 1 1/2 C oats (It really turned out perfectly!)
I added vanilla to the egg
My filling consisted of a half and half of rasp- and blueberries. Raspberry is my favourite!!
These turned out FABULOUSLY and received rave reviews. I just had one for breakfast!
Thank you for the starting point to what turned out to be MY 5-star recipe!!
