    per review of mrthing I used Martha White self rising flour and as the dough was a little tough to work with I added about 2 TB canned milk when mixing in the flour, worked like a charm they look delicious but since it is a dish for Church I won't know how it tastes until someone tells me. Thank you for the recipe it is hard to find desserts w/o eggs!

    I made these and they were perfect. Our oven is a little bit older. So you have to adjust the temperature sometimes. However, I made these and I was very happy. Now a week later I got on here to check the recipe again to make them and decided to write a short review. Just follow the recipe and you should get great results.

    I made 6 batches of these.. And they were all harder than rocks!<br/>Avoid this recipe!<br/><br/>This recipe is very easy to make... but you won't be able to eat it!

    Yep, this recipe is a keeper!!! My pantry had Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate so that's what was used. My family enjoyed them very much despite being milk chocolate lovers. Thanks to other reviews, I watched this very carefully while baking in my inconsistent temp oven. The edges did brown but the center was obviously not done. A few minutes later the center was "done" and the edges were still fine. They turned out very well. As many say, this is more of a shortbread bar and is very, very good! This is a recipe that is staying in the recipe box to be used again and again! Thank you for sharing!
