- 2 eggs
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

Thank you for this recipe, Frank Bee! I beat the eggs. I also greased and floured baking pan! If I recall correctly, I believe I'd used a 12x8" baking pan instead of
a 13x9x2" baking pan! At any rate, i was pleased with this recipe and certainly will keep it in mind to prepare again! As I recall, I chilled the bars to firm them up!
I kept them chilled for at least 15 to 20 minutes before I cut them! Dawn E. Lowenstein
Perfect just the way it is! Huge hit in my family.
I was very disappointed in these bars. I made them for our church picnic and they were hardly touched. The moist center had very little flavor. Taste of Home has never let me down until this recipe. Won't make this again.
If I can't use walnuts, what would be a good substitute? almonds? peanuts?
I made this over the weekend and had to make them again for the girls at work! They were gone in a minute and all had to have the recipe.
