I made this for Thanksgiving and my family loved it! I cut big pieces out and served it like cake with cool whip on top. Very tasty! I did have to increase the cooking time to an hour because it had not cooked in the middle after 45 min.



These were awesome and easy to make. The crust was thick and yummy. The only problem is it would be difficult to serve them as the picture indicates, cut in pieces on a plate. They are two soft. I would reccomend serving this on plates with a fork. At my party no one grabed one of the plate they took the brownies instead. However, they all took some home to eat later.



I enjoyed the taste of this recipe, but had trouble with the cooking time. I burned the bottom layer because I was too busy paying attention to the top and waiting for it to brown. After 45 minutes it was not browned on top. At 55 minutes I burned the bottom. It is great served warm, but does fall apart easy. Definitely recommend serving with whipped cream. Absolutely grease the pan!
