After intending to follow the recipe exactly, I had to make some changes. First, after seeing the other cook's review, I tried making the bars in a jelly roll pan instead of a cake pan. I baked the crust for about six minutes, and the whole thing for about seven minutes. The topping gets big bubbles on top, which is the way its supposed to cook. They turned out flat, but the top was chewy and and bottom flaky. Be sure to use *real butter* or they won't turn out right. I didn't use coffee as they are for my husband, who doesn't like coffee. I also forgot vanilla and didn't put the nuts on til after the bars cooked. Be sure to use sea salt as it doesn't dissolve on the hot bars. I will definitely make them again and try the cake pan just to see if that makes a difference. Oh, and the crust is not supposed to be done after the first baking. It finishes baking with the topping, which also helps the topping absorb somewhat and become chewy.
