Very good flavor, the frosting is sweet but the other two layers are not so it balances out really well. A pan never lasts long in our house!
This recipe sounds really good.
Our Board Moderator has had the butter amounts adjusted.
Wondering if the 1/2 cup butter listed with the frosting should be in the crust and the 1/3 cup in the frosting?
Haven't tried it yet as the amount of butter for the crust is not listed. Sounds wonderful otherwise.
