"I came across this recipe many years ago, in Taste of Home, and it is truly a favorite among family and friends... it is requested for every holiday and any other time I am asked to make something. I thought people would tire of the same dessert every time I bake, but it is undoubtedly the recipe I know by heart and enjoy making! Enjoy!!"
"This was a wonderful recipe- delicious and easy to make. Unlike the previous reviewer, the topping didn't crumble. I was able to cut them bite-size. I also used pecans instead of walnuts, and used half almond/ half vanilla extract. Very tasty!"
"This is so yummy. A little crumbly on top, but the bottom is solid. Can be eaten on a plate.Next time maybe more butter to the topping should be added to stop the crumbles.Otherwise it is Excellent!! The taste is delicious. I used pecans rather than walnuts because my family prefers them, and one is allergic to walnuts. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!"
