I just made these and they are great! They remind me of pecan pie YUM. I took the advice of some and cut down the brown sugar but I think I will follow the recipe exact next time (we like rich desserts). I found the best way to do the crust was cut up the cold butter then mix it up with my hands. For those who say it was a gooey mess then I think they just didn't bake it long enough. They should come out of the pan just like a bar cookie. I will definately make these over the holidays.

These came out WAY too sweet and WAY too mushy. I was very disapointed and definitely will not make this recipe again.

Bye for now Sorry I didn't get back sooner but these were the Yums Yums I was looking for. My husband is so happy. His mo used to make them and no one in the family could find the recipe. Thankyou Dorothy
