These were awesome. The four stars is only because of the mistakes in the recipe. I read the reviews first which helped. I used an 8x8 baking pan and baked it at 325 for 25 mins and then at 300 for 15 mins more. The key is to make sure that the middle is nearly as high as the edges...then you know it's done. I also turned the oven off, cooled it a little bit, and let the dessert sit in there for about 20 mins more as the oven cooled down. It turned out wonderfully and was a huge hit at our pot luck. My husband is already asking for me to make it again. Yum!

My family loved this! You can half the chocolate chips and shortening, it'll look better when you drizzle it on. My sister-in-law made this first and the same thing that happened to her happened to me (it wasn't done in the middle after 30 minutes) so she told me to turn the oven off and crack the oven open and let it sit in there for an extra hour--it did the trick! My crust was a little stuck, but my sister-in-law's didn't stick because she lined her pan with foil. ALSO--the pan size is 9x9 not 9x13. The recipe doesn't exactly say, so yes, it's 9x9 and there's a perfect amount of everything. I will make this again!

I was supposed to bring it to my office's cookie swap and the recipe is wrong! There is not enough cream cheese filling. Very disappointed. Will never make again.
