    In medium bowl, mix cookie mix, softened butter, sour cream and 1 of the eggs. Spread two-thirds of the mixture into pan.

Expert Tips

  • Using parchment with an overhang makes for easy removal of the bars. I like to secure the extra parchment with metal binder clips. You can use foil instead of parchment if you prefer.
