had to make a square to take to a baby shower this afternoon and needed a quick one (it was 12:30 & the shower was at 2:00) so i opened my community cookbook and thought i'd give this one a try, it was a success everyone loved it and the couple pieces i managed to save for my husband he loved.

Wow, these could be addicting. A few of the directions were unclear, but I did what I thought sounded best and I am now in heaven. Salt is listed twice for the crust. I used about a tsp of salt and a half a tsp of baking powder. Also, the topping has "syrup" - I assumed this was maple syrup but later realized it could be corn syrup. I used pure maple syrup. I used vanilla since that is what the recipe calls for, but I wonder how almond extract would work...Also, it says to watch closely during at about 12 to 15 minutes of cooking, but it doesn't say what to watch for. I waited until it was just about firm. I give the end result five stars!
