I loved the ease of this recipe. Tastes great! I used parchmount paper and just lifted it out of the pan.
This was perfect for a snow day. Had all the ingredients on hand in abundance and it was in the oven in no time!
I loved the ease of putting this dish together. Good, clear instructions and the 'pantry' ingredients most people have made this dish a classic at our house. Good and gooey. I also added 2/3 coarse chopped pecans. Good, good, good!
