Tastes great, but didn't turn out how it should have. I made the base as written and yet no matter how hard it was pressed into the pan, it just crumbled everywhere. For the topping I only used 1 cup icing sugar and yet I still had to use 2 tbs milk to get it to be anywhere near spreadable. When spreading it over the cookie bottom it globbed and pulled up large clumps of the bottom. It did taste fantastic though and DH has eatten half of the pan already!
