Butter Berry Cake Bars*

*no, of course it’s not dairy butter, silly!  The “butter” comes from “butterscotch,” which is what these babies taste like to me.  I could have called them “berryscotch,” but that sounded too much like an alcoholic beverage. 😉 Two posts in one day–am I mad??  No, just behind on my posting (as usual)–and I really, […]
