These definitely did not turn out as expected, or even look at all like they do in the picture. I did everything as instructed in the recipe, but once they had been in the oven for 18 minutes, they started to turn dark brown. I was worried they were burning so I took them out, but the filling hadn't even set yet; it was still liquid. They just looked burned and unappetizing. Eventually I had to bake them for much longer than the recipe instructed just so they would solidify. They tasted all right when they were fresh (even though they looked terrible), but the next day the texture of the bars had completely changed and they didn't taste good anymore either. I had been planning on them for our Cinco de Mayo party but I didn't even bring them because they looked so awful, and I ended up throwing most of them away. What a waste.
