I have used this recipe for years though we cut the pieces a little thicker to ensure they are soft-- it's a family favorite that I lost in a recent move. Thank you for a wonderful website!

However, I like to use the recipe for whoppie pie filling, using 2 sticks of butter, 2 cups 10x sugar and a 7oz jar of marshmallow creme, I sometimes add 1 or 2 egg whites.
