Recipe by Tracey Davidson Miz

One of the first things I learned to make growing up. And now I only make these at Christmas as one of my special holiday treats.

I've seen this recipe around, and have been wanting to try it. I think I was expecting the mix/ingredients to be a bit more crumbly, but it was closer to 'batter-like'. Baked up nicely and there is a great toffee undertone to the bars. I have to find someone to share them with, or I'm going to eat them all! Thanks for sharing, Tracey Davidson Mizell.
