I have made these for years but the crust I use is not at all dry. It calls for 1/2 c. butter (not melted) and only 1 tbls. of sugar. Also cut back on the sugar in the topping which keeps them less sweet. Still a great bar, but I feel (personal preference) the base is not quite so dry.

These are quite good - not too sweet, not too tart. I really enjoyed the "cakey" crust. But, I just felt that something was missing - maybe a dollop of whipped cream...

While I liked the taste, my pineapple loving hubby did not. He felt it was too dry. Maybe I did something wrong.
