i gave this five stars because after i completey botched this it still tasted good. i am not a baker at all and when following the recipe i thought that the 1c of flour must have gone into the cookie bar part and the 2tb flour must have gone in the pastry part. after i saw the pastry part wasnt really turning out as it should and then the cookie bar part was really tough to stir, i realised my huge error. my daughter and i threw it in the oven anyway and when they came out were delicious anyway and although not that attractive; very good. i will make these again, but be sure to do the recipe correctly. thanks for sharing; they were very very good.

This is a wonderful treat! So chewy and tasty! I like to take out the walnuts myself, but with or without them it tastes great!!!
