The flavour of these was good. When baked the slices were about 1/14" to 1 1/2" think. You didn't specify a pan size. I googled slice tray and they come in different sizes. I put in a request for anyone who could give me a pan size. No one was sure. I used an 8"X11" pan but it took an extra 15 minutes to bake. I think a pan about 9 1/2" X 13 1/2" would have been better. It would be helpful if you could put pan sizes in your recipes.Thanks.
