I have only made two of the recipes so far, but was disappointed that the second had an error. The Turtle Bars are pictured with three even layers: crust-brownie-caramel nut. However, for the caramel layer the recipe only calls for 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons of cream for the 9 x 13 pan. There is just no way that amount of caramel will cover the nuts in more than a drizzle - yet the photo clearly shows a generous caramel layer. I ended up doing a second, double batch of caramel. But the top layer is firm enough that when you try to slice them it pushes the softer brownie layer out and makes a mess.
I am still anxious to try some of the other recipes, but have other CIA books and know they sometimes do not test their recipes properly in home kitchens.
