I made this for our card group. Everyone LOVED it and wanted the recipe. Delicious. I sliced the few remaining pieces and put in individual freezer containers for my husband's sweet tooth craving.

MY REVIEW

The family said this recipe was a definite keeper! I made it in an 8" pan and put caramel topping and toffee bits on both layers. I also used the whole package of pecan sandies but it doesn't have 52 cookies in it anymore - probably only about 42 - but that was enough.
