Many reviewers said these squares were very sweet and since we're not a family who really gets into things that are "too sweet," I did cut back the brown sugar in the filling to less than 1 cup. I used an 8x8 pan, so I did cook them longer, but the texture turned out fine, and you could eat them with your fingers. You won't get a clean cut on these like you do on a lemon bar, for example, but that was OK with me. The bottom layer tastes like a rich shortbread cookie, and the filling was very moist. To get a nice frosting on the top, you may want to make extra icing, as I really didn't have quite enough even for my 8x8 pan. By all means, do cut into small pieces because they are decadent (and filling).
