Getting ready for a little baking. I'm so glad your here. You'll love this easy and sweet treat that makes 16 little mouth fulls of delight. I love to cook with Grand Marnier, the lovely liqueur made in France so when I devised this recipe it was the prefect mate for the cherries or berries, you choose.
It will be the crust and the topping.
Pat half into your 8X8 pan.
Top with your choice of jam mixed with Grand Marnier.
Top with the rest of the crumbs mixed with the nuts.
Ta Da! Simple and sweet.
Had to show off my newest vintage red rose hankie.
