    Mercy's Note:

    Soft, plump raisins layered in a crispy crunchy crust and drizzled with sweet cinnamon icing. My Mom made these yummy bars often over the years. They are absolutely delicious and deceptively easy! Craisins and/or golden raisins make great additions to the standard raisin filling.

    1. 1
      Combine the raisin filling ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until the raisins are plump and the liquid has almost completely evaporated (about 10 minutes).
    2. 2
      While the raisin filling is heating, cream the butter and brown sugar together, mix in the dry ingredients and 1 tablespoon of water (it will be very crumbly).
    3. 3
      Press half of the mixture (about 2 cups) firmly into the bottom of a greased 9"x13" pan and spread with the raisin filling.
    4. 4
      Mix 1 tablespoon of water with the remaining crumbs and scatter over the raisin filling.
    5. 5
      Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes and then cool slightly.
    6. 6
      Mix together the cinnamon icing, adding enough milk to make a drizzling consistency, drizzle over the top and cut into squares.

      An enjoyable recipe indeed! Made this for my Housewarming and got rave reviews. Some compared it to a date square. I think the raisins are a great alternative to dates!

      These were pretty darn tasty! I was a little skeptical at first, but I really liked them and so did my neighbors that got cookie trays from me. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

      Wow. I'm soooooooooo excited I found this recipe. DH invited a herd of people over for a Football Party and I needed to whip up something for the girls in the group that didn't include bacon, meat or beer. I picked this recipe, and am so glad I did! I had to make a few substitutions with what I had on hand: 1) I realized I didn't have any ground cinnamon (Yikes!) so I decided to toss in a cinnamon stick when I cooked the Raisin Filling. Next, I subbed Apple Pie Spice in the icing in place of the cinnamon for the Icing, and quite honestly, if I made these again - I would do the exact same thing b/c it was a great flavor. I also made a bit of extra frosting as I know that I really like that part! It was a perfect fall treat! This recipe is great for the Oatmeal Raisin Lovers who like ooey-gooey poofier raisins. Amazing treat.
