Recipe by Marg (CaymanDesigns)
This is a recipe that I adopted and it is a little different than I expected. The bottom layer isn't really a cookie but it also isn't quite candy. I couldn't cut it into bars so I ended up breaking it isn't pieces instead. They taste really good and were very popular at the party I took them to. If you want more of a cookie bottom, I'd take them out at about 20 minutes.
