I grew up on a farm and have had a lot of good recipes handed down to me. This is one of my favorite desserts to serve when guests come over or at family gatherings and church suppers.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2013

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!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 8, 2010

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2010

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!!
