These are great ... they're chewy and sweet, and so hard to stop eating.

Saw this recipe this morning and made it this very afternoon and have already enjoyed two pieces with my glass of 2 % milk.Definitely delicious and very easy to assemble.

This is exactly the recipe I inherited from my German grandmother (I am almost 70) except she baked them in a 9 x 13 pan, which made them very thin. These are so very good.
