Frosted Raisin Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jezski

aka Coffee Raisin Bars. A good "olde" recipe from the 50's. Posted in answer to a request. We've been enjoying these for years. One of those old-fashioned cookie bars people always like. Not elegant or gorgeous but just plain good.

These are very similar to a fruit bar that a very popular grocery store in our area sells, I've always loved them. I think they would be just as good without the frosting, but hey you can never have enough frosting, right? Thanks for a timeless recipe, it's one that we'll enjoy for many years.
