Excellent flavor! Bake the base for 15-20 minutes before adding the remaining ingredients. Bake until golden brown on top. Cool on wire rack. Cut with a sharp knife and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

This has been a bar I've made for years. My husband has to have it every Christmas. I too double the recipe. I also bake the crust for a 20 minutes. I found it works well to lower the temperatue of the oven to 325 degrees during the last ten minutes of baking. Then the edges don't get so brown. compared to the outside edges

Also one of my favorite childhood recipes. The only problem is that they go too quickly. I like to double to recipe and make it in a 13x9 inch pan.
