I just love these timeless coffee bars, way before Starbuck's and designer coffee became all the rage! Back when our families had peculators!

Very nice bar. Next time I would bake in a 9 x 9 pan so that the bars would be thicker. I had to leave the raisins out for DH but if you like raisins, I would definitely add them. I love raisins. I would also add milk instead of water to the glaze next time. Thanks Kiwidutch for a nice treat. Made for The Best of 2008 Cookbook.
