I cut this from a magazine several years ago (not sure which one). Putting it here for safe keeping...hopefully I'll get to make it sometime soon!

fantastic!! this reminds me of a recipe my mamaw used to make. i really enjoyed this, and so did my dad! my toddler wasn't too thrilled because of the nuts, i expected that tho! i followed the recipe exactly except that i cut it in half and used a 8x8 dish. it was so easy to put together, especially with the help of my food processor for the vanilla wafers crumbs! these are soooo heavenly and rich! thanks for posting! will make again for sure! made for spring pac 2010!
