    * Pamela *'s Note:

    I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead desserts. This is the original introduction: "This is a recipe that has been a fave in our family. They got their name because they are so good that they are 'guaranteed to make your jeans fit tighter'. Cheesy saying, I know, but they are really good!(= Hope you enjoy them too!"

      These were good. I made the recipe as written. I think the filling was great but the crust needed something more, but the frosting rocked.

      Just made these and could not wait until they were cool. Cut a piece out of the pan and put a little frosting on it. DELICIOUS! My daughter will be gobbling these up after play practice. Thanks for posting!

      Ok! I was wrong! These totally rock, frosting and all! (I OD'ed on them when they first came out of the oven, and reached my sugar quotient! That's why I thought the frosting was initially unnecessary.) I can admit when I'm wrong! This one's a definite keeper! Thanks for posting!
