    Easy to make and the group I made this for went nuts. They did not know it was less calories. I used finely chopped pecans. - 3/10/07

    This was delicious! My husband and co-workers loved it and I had a few recipe requests. I would recommend a slightly longer baking time, but it could have been my oven. - 10/26/07
