"This is a CLASSIC recipe! My mom has been making these rich bars since I was a child. Her mom made them for her. Walnuts work equally well in this recipe. Occasionally I have added a handful of white chocolate chips to the batter. This is a great bar to add to cookie platters. Or a quick treat, most items we have on hand. Don't let the sticky, hard to spread dough scare you. Just smooth out as best you can and trust it will fill up pan nicely! Yummy!"
