This is one of my newly adopted recipes. I tossed this together tonight while fixing dinner. Very quick and easy dessert. I used regular apple butter, but no added sugar apple butter could be used as well.

This was good. I used pumpkin butter because that's what I had. I'm looking forward to trying it with apple butter! I bet that is even better. I'm thinking apple butter and maybe a very thin layer of apples too. Thanks for sharing. I'll definately make this again.

Found this recipe while looking for something to serve as a light dessert after a grilled dinner. They disappeared in half an hour between 9 people. Next time, will make 1 1/2 batches and use 13x9 pan, these were absolutely awesome! Thank you for sharing.
