Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These bars are really good! They taste a little like a sugar cookie crust. Do not let the shortening keep you from trying these, just do like I did and use butter instead of the shortening

would the crust work with a cake mix,dry with butter added ?

Hello! - Yes, you can make the crust with a dry cake mix and butter, but it will result in a thicker crust. - Enjoy!
