This is a great square! It's very unique and tastes wonderful. It comes from my church cookbook. My favorite part is the fluffy icing.

This is definitely a unique recipe!! However, I would call it more of a dessert than a bar. The flavour is quite good although a little sweet. The base is actually a cakey/brownie-like texture; the filling is like macaroons & the icing ended up almost pudding-like & tasted really buttery. I got a little confused with the icing instructions & boiled the butter mixture, too, although in the end I think it just should have been beaten with an electric mixer. I doubt I'll make this recipe again just because of all the time it takes.
