    Followed the instructions carefully and it still had a soggy bottom. Not overly keen on the caramel topping. One for the bin I think.

    Tried these and the lemon bars. They were both really easy to make and tasted beautiful, because the base is the same it is easy to make both and have two very different slices. The mix of the nuts is reall really tasty.
