My mom used to make these sans nuts all the time. As an adult, I was silly enough to think she just pressed cookie dough in a pan instead of cookies.
This recipe IS CORRECT!! The thing that some people might not have noticed, as I have done the very same thing on many a recipe, is the pan size. That is a HUGE pan.
14x 17 is not your normal size on a bar type recipe, so I think maybe that could trip you up. My pan was 13 x 18 and the dough didn't quite reach all corners, but it cooked out beautifully.
These do indeed cook in 10 minutes in a HUGE pan pan at 400 degrees. The dough should seem like a thin layer, it will puff up while baking. You will likely need to press it out as you fill your pan.
They are absolutely divine!
