    I made this bar cookie and it was a hit at our swim Christmas party.The crust was crunchy and held up the jam without falling apart. The apricot jam was the best as it went nicely with the cornmeal crust. I sprinkled some sliced almonds and some powdered sugar for decoration and it kinda looked like snow.I would make this recipe again.FanciNanci

    If you truly are a seasoned baker, you know exactly what an off-set spatula is. Stop joking around lol...

    What the heck is an "offset" spatula. I've been baking for many years and have never heard of it LOL! I don't have a Kitchenaid applicance either...just use elbow grease!!!!

    In place of a #11 tip and pastry bag, use a ziplock bag, cut off a small corner..it works well or take a small amt of dough and roll gently into a very thin rope and place on jam base in overlapping strips. Hope this suggestion helps. Soonan

    Has anyone tried to make these ahead of time and frozen them? They sound wonderful, and would be nice to have in the freezer.

    i have to agree with cjs's comments, whatever happened to a bowl, spatula,and a inexpensive hand mixer. Do these things work anymore, tell me.

    Has anybody tried these yet? I'll have to look for my "#11" but I'm hoping that it's small enough so that when the dough rises, it doesn't cover the "windows." I like the idea of baking them all at once, a much faster cookie-baking process. Has anybody tried other jam flavors, i.e. strawberry?

    Letn n n n n n s see: I need a pastry bag fitted with a #11 plain tip, a mixer with a "paddle" attachment, an offset spatula (???).... Good grief! it would be cheaper and less time consuming to BUY the darn cookies!!
