For the extreme sweet tooth! I used rum extract and like Bea said, it tasted like rum raisin candy. I did have some trouble dishing it up...the crust was a bit crumbly and the filling had to be scooped...it wasn't firm enough to cut into squares even though it was completely cooled...Maybe if I had put it into the refrigerator it would have. Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.

I am not much for baking so when I a find an easy recipe like this one that turns as good as this, I keep coming back to it. This will be seeing many repeats here. I used the rum extract option and it tasted like a rum raisin dessert, mm, mm good. This will definitely satisfy any sweet tooth. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
