  1. I used to make a pie that had Cream cheese and sweetend condensed milk in it. Everyone loved it.... This really sounds good.

  2. I've had this recipe bookmarked for a while now. It just sounds so delicious.

  3. Tiffanee, these look so wonderful. What a perfect holiday bar. I can imagine all kinds of flavor combinations too. We are going to have to try these.

  4. These look so good! Hope you're having a good day!

  5. The recipe doesn't specify. I used old fashioned oats because I find the quick oats to be a bit dry in this recipe. Thanks.

  6. Yummy! I posted a link to this on my blog...thru my pinterest board.
