    Excellent! Only I substituted chocolate chips for the walnuts because the kids don't like nuts! Everyone RAVED about them!  -  03 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Are you supposed to be able to get the bars out of the pan before cutting them? That's what I tried… I had trouble with that and my single baked cookie broke into about 5 pieces. Luckily they were still warm and I could stick them back together. And confectioners sugar, I learned, covers up a bunch of imperfections. Gave it 4 stars because despite all the trouble, they still tasted great!  -  24 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
