SO HOW'D IT GO?

While this recipe is tasty, it is not as sweet as I was thinking it would be.  I LOVE the crust!!!!  Super yummy!!!  This was a hit with the youth I served it to at work.  I beleive I waill make this recipe again, however I think I will add more sugar and maybe some vanilla.  Thank you!
