Hungarian Cookie Bars

"Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Hungary. I haven't tried this recipe, but it seems to be a very quick and easy cookie to make. These bars are sticky and gooey and similar to a walnut pie."

    Delish. I made these with walnuts and my family devoured them. Easy to make too. Thanks for sharing, Sue. Congrats again on your football win.

    This is an excellent treat and easy to make as all reviewers have mentioned. I made a mistake and added a total of 4 eggs, which turned out very well. Just a hint of a custard taste to enjoy! Also, we took plunge and actually put this in a 9" pie pan. Again - excellent results. We used chopped walnuts for the nuts. Unlike one reviewer, I did not find this treat too sweet. It is sweet yes, but with a cup of unsweetened tea it is such a simple delight. We're not sugar hounds around here and thought the sweetness was just right. Tip: I used my immersion blender to quickly froth the eggs in a bowl. (Remember, I used four eggs by mistake.) Thank you Bayhill!

    This deserves more than 5 stars!!! We loved them! I did have to cook them more than 40 minutes. I used walnuts and hubby took them to work and everybody loved them. I may have to make another batch for me and hubby since I've fallen in love with this. YUM!!! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
