I found this in an article on award-winning cookies--this one was submitted by a woman named Jillian Greene. YUMMY! She certainly deserved her prize!

Hi .. I just went to check my 'review' of this recipe.. and lo and behold I must have screwed up.. only my name is there! Sorry melismak. This recipe is absolutely scrumptious! However, I had some problems with the pan size and getting the bottom 'layer' to cover the pan. Initially, I used the pan stated in the recipe, but it was lots too big for the dough. So I then tried a 10x15 pan, which was also larger than the dough required, so left some of the pan 'uncovered' so to speak. Then I had an awful time getting the dough to stick to the greased surface, it was hilarious :) I must have done something wrong, and would like to have any tips .. to help me next time I make this recipe, which I most definitely will do. Thanks :)
