This is a great discovery. I was searching for a way to use up a Christmas gift basket that contained two big boxes of mixed dried fruit. This recipe reminded me of a family favorite cookie — raspberry bars — so I decided to try it. I followed the recipe with one tiny addition. I used 1/2 c of oats and 1/4 c of walnuts in the crust mixture. Then I added a 1/4 c of oats to the reserved crust mixture for the crumb topping. I did add about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the fruit on the stove. All these autumn flavors were just calling out for cinnamon to me. I’m not sure it made any difference in the end. I foresee buying more bags of dried fruit from Trader Joe’s to make this again. Yum!
