A buttery flakey treat.

Very yummy! It's not too sweet and tasted just right. I modified it a bit by adding in choc chips. Something I'm planning on making again soon

So simple and very yummy! I used an 8x8 pan and it worked fine. An hour was just about perfect, but a couple more minutes might have made it too well-done, so you might want to peek at it a little sooner.
