      Made these today for Bunco and couldn't resist sampling to compare your recipe to mine. (The only difference is that you double the vanilla and also have vanilla in the crust). Yours wins! These rock! Anyone who likes chess pie or buttermilk pie will like these even more...more "solid", love the way the top puffs up. BTW, had to save some for my kids or they'd never speak to me again...GREAT, quick & easy recipe. Thanks so much!

      Very easy to make. I surprised myself how quickly I put them together. Definitely bake the full hour. Took them to work and got rave reviews. Very sweet and rich so cut the squares small.
