      Delicious and moist! These bars melt in your mouth! Love it, make a quadruple batch, turned out amazing. ONLY, I made some brown butter CREAM CHEESE icing, instead. Turned out wonderfully. Thanks for sharing. This is a keeper.

      Picked this recipe up at Penzey's and have made them numerous times. Everyone loves them! Browning butter for the frosting gives the bars a wonderful flavor. As written, the frosting will be difficult to work with, not very spreadable, more like a fondant. I think it would be more effective to cool the butter to room temperature, then beat in the other frosting ingedients. I prefer the bars as is, but made a note on my recipe card for a less sweet version to try halving the icing and thinning with milk to make more of a glaze or drizzle. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
