I don't actually go looking for recipes often. Most of the time, the appear on my doorstep. Or, in this case, in my email. Pillsbury.com puts out a lot of great recipes. Not always easy, but often delicious. Having said that, my husband is brilliant -- he suggested placing a piece of wax paper in the bottom of the 13 x 9 and putting the top layer in as if it were the bottom layer, then pulling it all up. When placing it down on the caramel mixture, just flip it carefully, then peel back the wax paper. . .
