I made these bars and they turned out hard as a rock. I couldn't even cut tem. Can anyone tell me what I did wrong. I'd like to try them again. firstname.lastname@example.org
These bars are the bomb. Everyone should try these, or just come buy a batch from me. BDW
I rated this as excellent although mine didn't turn out as it should have. I didn't use all of the crust mixture thinking that it would be too thick. I should have stuck to the recipe. My crust was too thin but tasted great. Definitely stick to this recipe and you will love this recipe.
Raves from friends when I held a Partylight gathering. Requests for this recipe came from the left and the right. Sales were not as impressive.
