Should be 10 stars. Very easy, and very good! My husband requested them for his birthday. I put on a sour cream topping. Thanks so much!
Made this for New Year's Day to take to a sick family member. Of course, I had to keep some for us. Good thing, for it was so yummy!! Left out the nuts, but followed rest of the recipe exactly. Be sure to chill it for a long time, just like a cheesecake. Very easy to throw together. Could even spread a chocolate frosting/topping over the top for a different look/taste. Sure doesn't need it, because it is delish just the way it is. Great recipe, Marie!
I made this twice in one week for Christmas parties. I thought it was addicting...the caramel layer is too good for words. Absolutely loved it. I liked the brown sugar in the crust and I used pecans that I lightly toasted first. Just divine and a new favorite.
