    I double the recipe for the filling. I also added some chocolate chips. My family of picky eaters loved it.

    I felt that the pan was too large. I had a hard time spreading the dough to fit the 9x13 pan. Also the filling didn't fill the pan. I found a similar recipe in an old cook book that suggested using a 9 x9 pan.

    I've made a recipe similar to this for over 50 years. Sent them along on an all day fishing trip with my husband and his brother one year. He said they were almost gone before they left our driveway.lolscarfy_54 Also, Idaho
