    Sounds yummy.. my only question is could you use less sugar, and get away with it?

    Heather,

    With the gran sugar I have used one cup instead of the one and 3/4 cups and you can hardly noticed the difference in taste.

    I will be making this next time the grand children come. Thank you so much for this recipe. I may have to make it before they come, though. It sure is making me hungry!

    I made this with blueberry pie filling and it was a huge hit. We all loved it! Today I am going to try it with a lemon pie filling and see how fast this pan will go.

    I'm going to try this recipe when my turn to bring in snacks for Sunday school comes up. I'll make it with splenda so my pastor can eat it. Is there a way to make the icing sugar free too?

    Oh Yes......It's yummy! Just a little fyi....I was out of AP flour so I used SR flour and omitted the baking powder. It turned out a little more cake like but still very good. I will be trying it again with the AP flour for the bar texture. I think they would freeze better that way.
