    Kayne's Note:

    I found this on the back of a grocery cash register receipt, just don't ask which store! I have NO idea, although the most likely would be Ingles, in Georgia where I used to live. That was were I did 99% of my grocery shopping. I haven't tried it, but intend to very soon. It sounds delicious.

      Great tangy flevor, but way too soft! It needs more flour in the crust, and maybe a little in the filling.

      These squares are delicious. They're very soft. Probably because I didn't use butter in the crust (it was at room temperature, so I had to use cold shortening). I left the crust in the oven for 15 minutes. If I do them again, I'll probably reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup in the filling. Thanks Kayne. Made for Newest Zaar Tag
