Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch square baking pan.
  2. To make crust: In a large bowl, cream shortening, white sugar and brown sugar. Separate egg and beat in yolk and vanilla, stirring until well blended. Slowly add in the flour and blend well. Mixture will be stiff.

Do NOT use unsweetened chocolate - it makes the recipe taste horrendous. We had much better success when we switched to semi-sweet - did not get the strange, twisted faces from people tasting the bitter chocolate.
