I make these for my dad all the time, he generally burns his tongue on them because he can't wait to taste them! I got this recipe from the Betty Crocker Cookbook.

I forgot all about this recipe until I stumbled across it here. This was a favorite of mine as a kid and I'm totally making it today! I love the contrast of the buttery, nutty base with the citrus icing. Yum! Thanks for posting it, making it so easy to import into my recipe app.
