Made this for my husband to bring to work for his birthday treat, and he said that her loved it. The only complaint that he had was that the crust layer crumbles too easily, but he really didn't car because he said it tasted so good. this was really easy to make and smelled wonderful. thanks for a wonderful recipe.
YUM! These were easy to make and turned out perfect! But I did use an 8x8in pan instead of the larger size to make them thicker.
