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.

Easy to make, dh enjoyed it, great recipe, thinking rum flavoring would be good to add to the raisin filling for an added zip next time. Easy recipe for the oatmeal raisin lovers out there.
