"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

My Goose is Cooked


Chocolate Base:
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cups flour
1 tbsp. cocoa

Caramel Filling:
cup butter
1 cups brown sugar
10 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
4 tbsp. flour

Butter Frosting:
6 tbsps. butter
7 tbsps. icing sugar
2 tbsps. milk
2 tbsps. boiling water
1 tsp. vanilla

Base: Cream the butter, sugar and eggs, then beat in the flour and cocoa. Spread into a 11" x 17" cookie pan. Bake 350F for 12 minutes.
Filling: Put the butter, sugar, condensed milk and flour in the top of a double boiler and heat to a slow bubble. Pour the filling over the hot base and pop it back into the oven until it just barely bubbles, about 2 to 3 minutes. (Don't overbake).
Frosting: Put all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat very well with an electric mixer. Do not under beat. When the frosting is very smooth, pour it evenly over the filling. These bars freeze well.
