    i lost this recipe 15 years ago so am very happy to have it back, in fact i have already made it twice. The first time i took it out of the oven at 30 minutes and it was great, but 35 minutes is too long--the biscuit base was too brown and shattered when i tried to cut it. To jazz it up i like to put small pieces of candied ginger or walnuts on top of the just-poured icing so that each square will have a piece in the middle. I also cut it into about 40 squares instead of 20 as the icing is very rich and two bites seems to be enough for everyone.
