“This was originally a pie recipe that I got from TOH magazine, but I converted it to bars, just for fun! This does make an excellent pie, too, just halve the recipe. I may just post this again, in pie form, so that people who do searches for pies can find it. The crust is quite simple (finally!) I never can make a crust without the family running away in fear of getting hit with flying pastry thrown in frustration. This doesn't look too pretty, but it sure is good!”
