This is another recipe for the SEMI HOMEMADE group I started today (12/15).

It is cookie based, yet Oooeeee, gooey, yummy tart!

Always great to make and serve a prize winning dessert from Betty Crocker.

*If you do not have a tart pan..use a 9 by 13 inch pan and cut into squares, instead of wedges.

Also, I used a tart pan that didn't have a bottom that was removeable...and it worked out fine. Just cut into wedges right from the tart dish.
