These squares were a winning recipe entry from Country Magazine, February/March 1997. **Note: 3/23/07--after Kittencal's review I revised a couple of the ingredients per her wonderful suggestions. :-)

I had this recipe years ago and I lost it OPPS! I was so please to find this recipe again. My DH really prefers this nutty crust over anyother. Thank you so much for posting this. I thought I might have lost it forever. Oh, and the changes that you made were right on. Delicious!!

These are great, although I only baked the crust for 8 minutes, I increased the vanilla to 1 tablespoon and used whipping cream in place of milk for a richer and thicker filling, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

This is a good and easy recipe, I'm not a fan of nuts so I used Heath bars instead. I chopped up about 3 and it worked great!
