    Very yummy and rich squares. Only change I made was because I was 1/4 cup short of pecans, so I just made up the difference with chopped walnuts. Plan to add these to my holiday cookie trays this year. Made for Fall 2012 Pick A Chef.

    Very tasty square and, surprisingly, not too overly sweet despite all that sugar. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)

    Tasted great, but had some problems with the crust. It never got crumbly, remained kinda powdery but I baked it anyway. When I went to cut it it crumbled and flaked off. I think I'd add more butter or some sort of liquid to the crust part next time. The filling was great, quite tasty. All that said, they were still one of the first things gone from snack day. Thanks Azparzych! Made for PRMR
