Have you ever had a bite of heaven on a fork? Look NO further. This is it! I’m telling you folks it’s paradise and it couldn’t be easier. Why? because the crust begins with a boxed mix, and usually – what can I way, it’s not always the best way to begin a recipe. But this, oh, I dare you to see if you can tell the difference. Now for the filling. It develops this ooey gooey amazing, fabulous, yummy center that you can’t describe. You’ve got to make it and try it. I thought the topping had a glaze, but NO! It just turns into this crispy, thin coating on the top when it cools all by its self.
Are you are ready for the recipe? Well, come on then, and let’s get cooking with the steps on the next page!
