Bug Bars

The old-fashioned cookies are like your grandma used to make… including the worms that were in her cupboard, too!

1/2 cup shortening                                   1 t. baking soda

1/2 cup margarine                                    1 t. cinnamon

1 cup brown sugar                                  1/4 t. nutmeg

1 cup sugar                                              3 cups quick oats

2 eggs                                                      3/4 cup raisins (optional)

1 - 1 1/2 cup flour                                   1/2 cup chopped, roasted mealworms (see recipe below)

                                                                1 t. vanilla

Cream shortening, margarine, sugars.  Mix in eggs and vanilla.  Stir in flour, soda, spices.  Stir in oats, raisins (optional), and mealworms.  Spread dough onto a greased 13 x 9 cake pan.  Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until done.  Cut into perfect-sized bars.
