    Made this the past three years for Christmas cookie gifts. Loved by everyone, adults and kids alike. The shortbread crust is amazing when using a UK butter (ex Kerry's gold) because of the higher fat content. Stays together perfectly, and the butter flavor is so pronounced. I didn't save it from the 1st year, and last year it took ages to find again but I had so many requests to make it a 2nd time that once I did I saved it, printed it, bookmarked it, and pinned it! Now onto this years batch

    These are ssooo delicious!! I'd say leave them overnight before you eat them. The bottom is a bit crumbly if you eat them too soon. but they next day they are absolutely heavenly. And very easy to make. I halved the recipe and am wishing I had made the whole thing!

    After reading some of the comments I almost didn't make these. I am really glad I did - my hubby LOVED them. I didn't see any of the problems others did. They held together very well - could easy be eaten with just fingers. And they were easy to make. I know they will become one of my favorites to make every year. Thanks, Martha.

    Don't know how quests could pick these up. The crust crumbles off all over the place and makes a huge mess. This is a total waste of time

    These were a huge hit at my house. They are so easy to make, definitely a go-to dessert now when having guests or just need to satisfy our sweet tooth.

    The hardest thing to do was let them cool before cutting! The aroma was fantastic, I have never tasted a better dessert, over the top delcious! I'm taking them to Bunco tonight!
