I found this recipe in an old Junior League cookbook. These delightful little tidbits are so easy and so good. The recipe is always requested.

I personally like the squares better with a little heat so I usually add some cumin and a touch of hot pepper sauce. Greasing the pan or spraying with oil is of the utmost importance. One might think these babies wouldn't be good at room temp but actually they are tastier after they cool and the flavors marry.
