Wonderful! Just like mother used to make.
Made as written. May try some variations in the future.
This is a great recipe. I doubled the filling only because we like it a bit thicker. It is really one of those good old fashioned recipes that takes me back home!
This I just like our mom use to make years ago and is so good, I give it five stars,
This is a wonderful old fashioned recipe that is moist in the middle and has a crunchy crust and topping. Plus, a 8" square pan makes just the right amount. Delicious with a cup of coffee or tea. I have even had them for a deilsh breakfast! This is a family favorite.
This is a delicious recipe. I usually double the recipe for a 9x13 pan. It is just like my mom's and I only wish she was still here to enjoy it with me!
