"Great classic recipe! Usually only make a half recipe for a 8x8 glass dish, bake 20 minutes. They will still be soft in the middle. Important to remember to grease dish and let cool completely before cutting. After cutting, these rich, chewy squares freeze very nicely. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy classic recipes using ingredients I usually have on-hand."
