I have taken over making this for the holidays since my friend passed away. It brings back many happy memories for me. This is melt-in-your-mouth goodness.

This is NOT for fat nor calorie counters --it is GOOD! With only 4 ingredients and good instructions, it went together easily. I think it could have baked another 2 minutes, but the edges were browning and I was worried about making all of it too dry. I also cut larger squares - got 35 instead of 48, so DH and I are sharing. Now, there will be someone else to think of you and your friend at holiday time. Made for PAC Spring, 2007. Thanks for sharing. Janey
