I didn't use melted butter, I used softened butter. (I've always found that using softened butter just turns out a better crust in a bar recipe.) I also used my own homemade cherry-raspberry jam in this recipe, as that was all I had on hand. To add a little more of a kick, I added a teaspoon of lemon zest to the crust fillings. This was very good, though I think this could be even better with a lemon glaze. I'm going to whip up a quick half batch and glaze the rest of the bars and then update my review on how we liked it. EDITED: The lemon glaze was quite good on this bar recipe. It made it a little sweet, but it mellowed once it was able to sit for a couple hours. With or without the glaze, it's a really good bar cookie recipe. The combination of flavors is really wonderful together.
