  • Reviews

  • “Apparently these were very good, though I never actually ate one. I make these for my friend and they were quite simple.”

  • “This is the perfect recipe for these bars.I have the same one in my recipe book but I got it elsewhere.I was going to post mine but here it is.The only change I made was to use oreo cookie crumbs instead of graham.I used toasted pecans in the crust also.So simple to put together but oh so good.”

  • “This was delicious.Tasted just like the ones I remember eating when I was young.I only used half of the first layer as I really like the custard layer to stand out :).I cut the pan into 16 squares.Don’t tell anyone, but I ate two of these for breakfast.”

  • “Sinfully delicious!The whole family loved them.When I asked DH if he agreed they were 5 stars, he said “at least”.They are rich, we cut them in 1″ squares and got a lot more than 12 servings.Definitely a “make again” recipe.Thanks for sharing, Bergy!”
