This is an excellent square which is very easy to make, looks good and tastes scrumptious. I have had this recipe for many years. It freezes well.

This is an excellent addition to my holiday tray. It definitely looks and tastes scrumptious. Made as posted and wouldn't change a thing. The Dad's cookies made for a wonderful base, the topping is delicious! Hid this one in the freezer too! Thank you - recipe is in my Holiday Cookbook.
