I originally submitted a 4 star review and I whined a little about the texture right out of the oven. Well, after I re-read the directions, I saw that you're supposed to put them in the refrigerator. Oh. my. goodness. These are stupendous!! The refrigerator step is essential! I took them to a lunch after church today and people seriously lost their minds over them. Next time I'll use a deeper 11x17 (I used like a jelly-roll pan), or a 9x13 + a 8x8. I was proud to offer them for dessert to new friends! Thanks riff-raff!
