"My sister brought this for the dessert on my daughter's farewell party and it was a huge hit!!! I have printed myself a copy and will definatley be making this. Excellent and so tasty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"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."
"a friend from work made this..left out the whipped cream and almonds, and made it in a 13x9 pan..everyone loved it!!"
"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."
