We clipped this recipe from the coupon section a few years ago and enjoy the tasty treat at Christmas. We like to add red and green baking bits on top to make them festive, and we sometimes leave out the nuts.

I lost my recipe for these, so have been looking at many of the ones posted. Almost all of them, people mention in their reviews, problems with the crust. The key is to drizzle the condensed milk over the crumbs, before adding the other layers, then taking a fork and pressing everything down, starting at one end of the pan and working your way across in rows to the other end of the pan. Great recipe ... so glad you posted.
