These are soooo good! The crust is buttery and light. I am not even a fan of turtles, but these are downright addictive.

These should be illegal. I am STUNNED they have just one review. I had a wonderful turtle bar at a local coffee shop and have tried to replicate with several different recipes with no luck. UNTIL NOW. These are not exactly like the ones I had, they are BETTER. Perfect, buttery and light crust. I cannot give this enough stars. My testers all gave 5 and one said to give it 85 stars. Will make these forever. Thanks so much for a BIG keeper! ~messy44

I originally saw this on a Food Network show, and then I found it here. This recipe is easy, and it tastes wonderful. Chilled, they are chewy and crunchy, and room temp., they are soft and dreamy. Either way, all I got were raves, and I will definitely be using this one again--it went into the coveted Christmas recipe folder! And PS--to those trying it for the first time: Don't worry about the ungreased pan. They dropped right out and I cut them with my bench scraper into perfect squares!
