"I just realized I've never rated this, although I've made at least 50 batches! These are so wonderful, I found them on this site after tasting the same recipe at a popular sandwich chain, called "She..." See moreila's Dream Bars" there. This is the exact same recipe, and it is buttery, but wonderful. You can omit 1 stick of butter without impacting the recipe too much if needed, I also often cut back on the sugar just 3-4 tblsp or so since the filling is so sweet. It definitely helps to refrigerate the dough for the top layer before adding and try to smoosh it flat and piece together as much as possible. And definitely keep the filling at least half an inch from the edges, I also press the dough down all around the edges to keep the caramel from leaking to the edge and burning. I have also started making different variations of these bars with different fillings - strawberry preserves and cheesecake filling, leftover apple pie filling and pecans, leftover bananas foster filling...all wonderful. They look nice when you wrap them in plastic wrap in squares and are very easy to make - thanks so much for ending my search!!"
"These were way too buttery. Even after they cooled off the butter was all over everyones hands and plates. Very greasy. I put them in the fridge and they were a little better after that. If I make..." See more them again I will definitely use less butter."
"Yummy yummy! I went with the suggestion of using 3/4 cup granulated sugar & 3/4 cup brown sugar. You could cut down butter, but I found that by baking an additional 10-15 minutes it allowed the gooe..." See morey topping to become more golden and crunchy. I used dulce de leche & it was just marvelous!"
