I still find lots of my time is spent making cookies. You may be shocked to find out how many “Cookie Monsters” there are!
This is a recipe I find I used quite a bit and still do.

I am going to try and made it with my pear preserves. I hope it works, but we love pears and I think it just might work.. Thanks

I'm in the northern Philippines at the moment (usually live in the USA) and can't get apricot preserves (at least for a reasonable price). So I used a soft guava jam instead. Result? A wonderfully moist cake with a delicious hint of guava! I glazed the cake/bar lightly with a thin mix of powdered sugar and milk and sprinkled it with chopped cashews (all other nuts too expensive here!) Yum! Thanks for the recipe!
