thank you sharon for posting this recipe , it was in mr pickys moms cook book . and at least you have instructions . ive put on 30 of her recipes and my eyes are crossing lol she is an awesome cook and her recipes are different
I was really expecting greatness after reading the reviews. I thought the crust was kind of out of place. The topping was great and may have been better on its own. Thanks for the recipe.
Oh My...these are so awesome. I love the taste of sweet/salty anything and these are perfect for just such a craving. Reminds me of a PayDay Candybar. Thanks for a winner/keeper Sharon. Made for ZaarStars.
