So, so over the top! I made these for a formal dinner party, because I wanted a dessert to equal an outstanding meal. This dessert does take more time than most to prepare. I didn't have an 18x13 pan so I used 2-9x13 pans, which worked perfectly. I was not able to get rid of the sugar graininess until I mixed in the flour. It does make a lot...
