Family and guests alike, all loved it; the few pieces that remained uneaten were eaten the following day and they tasted even better - this could be one of those recipes where the taste and texture of the final product is enriched with time.
I didnt add nuts bec I wasnt sure if our guests suffered from a nut allergy, and $it turned out just fine; though I would've loved the crunchiness of nuts, such as almonds, which are our favourite. Will add nuts next time.

Thank you for sharing this recipe! This has been a family favorite of ours for many years and since my mom's passing, this Sept, the recipe had been lost. Thank you and thank you for my brothers!!!!

Thank you for posting this recipe. It was my grandmother's favourite Christmas snack and my Gramps accidentally threw it out along with the Deed to the house...: ) I have been looking for it for _years_. I must have come from an old cookbook, long ago, as obviously, someone else has the recipe! That said, I couldn't get the whites to whip completely (took that mixer back!) and the oven wasn't working right, and it came out a bit doughy, but it still turned out great considering the situation. The first bite is pretty simple, but these really grow on you...I've come to love them over the years...thanks again!

These were great! I was scared at first since the topping was puffing up unevenly in the oven, but I patted it down just as soon as they were ready. I also used almond flakes instead of walnuts and I think it turned out wonderful.

We loved this recipe, we couldn't stop at just one. I did make a slight mistake, didn't read it properly and put the nuts on top of the crust, will definitely get it right the next time. Thanks donna.

I can't believe that I am only the second person to review these. These didn't last very long around my house. Many of the taste testers commented that they tasted like pecan pie -- my mom who is on a diet ate three bars and my very fussy 6 year old nephew gave them two thumbs up. I followed the recipe exactly and used pecans. Very easy and very good -- Thanks for a great recipe, Donna!!!!

These are really delicious squares! Better yet, they're easy to make and turn out perfectly! I made some for my Christmas cookie tray and everyone loved them. Thanks for passing on this recipe, Donna!
