I made these for a red party. They are easy to make and delicious to eat. I came home with an empty pan. I did not want an empty pan. The only tweak I made was to use unsalted butter. You could not tell the difference..

Thank you for this recipe! They are very good, I did not have any nuts in the house so I subbed crushed honey roasted sesame sticks! Still tastes GREAT! I'm curious about adding a thin cream cheese layer??? Very "pretty" & tasty!
