Top Review by The Pampered Chef

I made these on a whim. Had some friends over and the urge to bake and pulled out some ingredients from the cabinet. I logged onto Recipezaar to look for a recipe that uses the majority of ingredients that I had on hand and let me tell you. I found this recipe and made it. It was quick and easy, but the end result was absolutely fantastic. We kept sneaking into the fridge to get another piece and another. I mean the texture is so crumbly and good. But the white chocolate is what put it over the edge. Will be making this again during the holiday season to show off! Oh, one change I did make was I used 2 sticks of butter. Pure accident, but still came out great!
