Exclamation Save Me!!! Recipe Help

Hello Everyone!,
This is my first posting ever, so I would like to thank you all so very much for having me.
Okay,
I've been driving myself nuts trying to locate a recipe for a dessert I had last Easter, and a few times when I was in boot camp. In fact, I'm craving it so horribly that I'm having dreams about it. Anyways, the issue that I'm having is that I don't know what the dessert is called- thus I am unable to find a recipe.
The best way to describe the dessert I had would be to say that it was kind of like a thin layer of strussel filling topped with crumbs from a coffee cake of some sort. To the best of my memory, the fruity filling layer was rather thin, very sweet, kind of like jelly or strudel(or strussel depending on how its supposed to be spelled), and packed full of flavor. I don't remember it being chunky or having large pieces of fruit in it. The crumbs on the top were a fine layer as well, almost as to give the filling some extra texture if mixed in. There wasn't a crust that I can remember either. The topping reminded me of the top layer of a coffee cake-lots of crumbs, sometimes large crumbs.
I've spent hours and hours looking through recipes, searching for different desserts. I've searched cobblers, crumbles, and crisps, but none of them looked anything like the dessert I'm trying to find. If anyone could lend a hand or point me in the right direction I would be eternally grateful!
Thanks again,
Nick

Was it something like this?
Old-World Raspberry Bars | Land O'Lakes
Or this?

Impossible Cherry Pie

The one I had during easter was a berry combination or some sort and it was truely amazing. Thank you so much for the help though! :)

No, it wasnt quite like that, Hoot. This was much much thinner. The top of the pie is close, but this didnt have large pieces of fruit or a crust. Thank you for trying though! :)

Did you last have the dessert with friends, family, or at a restaurant? Can you ask the person who made it? Do you have any contacts with the cooks from your military unit?

Perhaps it was something like this?
Raspberry Streusel Bars with Brown Sugar, Oat and Pecan Topping | The SideDish.com Cooking Blog

It could be in any shape you wanted. Or did it have a layer of phylo?

Was it scone-like? Something like this? http://kitchensimplicity.com/blueber...-lemon-butter/

I am thinking you had a version of this CRUNCH recipe from the 60's.

CRUNCH

1 cup AP flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick of butter or margarine
1 can of pie filling

Mix flour, oatmeal, brown sugar. Melt butter and add to the dry ingredients.
Use half of the mixture on the bottom of a pie pan or small casserole. Add can of pie filling. Top with remaining crumbs. Bake at 350 for 30 to 45 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

You can add some cinnamon, nutmeg, nuts, etc. It depends on your taste and the type of pie filling.
