An old family favorite that is delicious and irresistible. This old fashioned recipe is one that is always requested to be on the Christmas goodie tray. A great hit at the potlucks.

  2. FILLING- In pot add butter or margarine, sugar, milk, and beaten egg.

Made this up for the DS to take to his music recreation group were they enjoyed it. I was lucky enough to be able to use graham crackers (used 2 of the three packets in the box) and used a 23cm square pan. Set in the refrigerator and was easy to slice and remove from the tin once set. Thank you Gerry, made for Aussie/NZ Swap #36 January 2010.

If you want a sweet treat than try this square. Believe me, it went into the freezer quickly as it is very addictive and rich.

This is one of my favorite Squares. I have been making it for years and it has been taken to many pot lucks, showers, office paries and on and on. I often add a bit of food color to the icing to suit the occasion. a bit of red (for pink) for christmas or green for christmas or st. Patrick's day and of course white =for a baby shower (or pink or blue). It has been our favorite square for many years and to good for other zaar chefs to pass by.
