A treat for raisin lovers! Prep time does not include cooling the crust. If you prefer a sweeter crust add in more brown sugar.
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1⁄2 cups golden raisins
- 1 cup soft unsweetened coconut
- Set oven to 350 degrees.
- Butter a 9-inch square baking dish.
- For the crust; in a bowl stir together the melted butter, white sugar, brown sugar until well blended.
- In a small bowl mix together flour, oats, cinnamon and pinch of salt, then add to the creamed mixture; mix until just blended.
- Lightly press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
- Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned; cool to room temperature.
- For the raisin topping; in a bowl beat the eggs with sugar and vanilla using an electric mixer until fluffy (about 3 minutes).
- In a small bowl mix together flour, baking powder and cinnamon; using a spatula fold into the egg/sugar mixture until blended.
- Stir in raisins and coconut; mix to combine.
- Spread over the cooled crust.
- Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

is this recipe from Anna Olson(from the cooking show Sugar)... i just made this recipe yesterday... they are really good though, especially the crust
These were decadent, simple, and oozing goodness. I fed them to a group of 13 yr old girls...let me tell ya, I'm glad I snuck a few pieces beforehand, because there was not a crumb left and the girls mentioned quite a few times how much they liked them. A warning though, they are *sweet*. It tastes like a coconut-raisin butter tart with a brown sugar shortbread crust, if there even is such a thing. I made a few changes based on what I had on hand- used thompson raisins and sweetened shredded coconut. I baked in a disposable 8" pan so I could toss the pan later on. Oh, and I cheated and used quick oats, but the crust was still delish. The base was great, the inside, gooey and sticky, and the top had a nice, firm crust. My only complaint is in presentation- it's hard to cut these without making a mess of the top crust, and they are sticky, which makes things more complicated. But aside from that, a lovely, sweet treat! Definitely will be made again around here, and next time I'll try the exact proper ingredients.
