"This is one of my favorite recipes for last-minute school bake sales," writes Sandy Kerrison from her home in Lockport, New York. "The cake-like snacks are the first items to go...that is, if they're not grabbed by a teacher first. I also include them in Christmas cookie gift baskets."

MY REVIEW

I increase the recipe by another 4th and bake in a 10x15 pan. Then I cut the puffier edges off and slice the middle part into bars. The "scraps" are my at home treat! EVERYBODY loves these - crispy top, gooey inside, simple and delicious.

When you need a quick & easy dessert - this is it! People love these these moist, flavorful bars, and it's almost embarassing to give out the recipe because it's so simple.

Make these now!

MY REVIEW

Followed the recipe exactly, but they came out very dry and cakey with a crusty top which crumbled when I cut through it. The taste was fine, just need WAY to be way more moist for my taste. I will not be using this recipe again.
