Great! Suggest a couple alterations!
This was great and everyone loved it! I would use some more preserves, reserve a little more than suggested of the crumb mixture for the top(this will also thin out the bottom a little to help make it not so dry but if you like a thicker bottom then just increase that portion of the recipe!), increase the cream cheese portion by quarter-half(I love the cream cheese part), and triple the almonds on top for the crunch! Even made as is it is a great recipe!
