I have been making these for years from a hand written recipe card, probably from a friend. I could not find the recipe anywhere and panicked! I found the exact recipe on this website and was ecstatic! It is a wonderful recipe. Very rich, but that's o.k. If you take it to a party, bring the recipe because I guarantee you will be asked for it. I real winner!
HUGE hit! Although a little too rich for some of the guests (even IF they had more than one!) GREAT RECIPE! Different from what I've had before in the crunchy bar crusts and I enjoyed the flakiness of it!
