Delicious! I have made these twice and substituted chocolate chips for raisins - they were a hit and gone in an instant! Great flavor!.

Very good bar recipe. Easy and quick to make. Brought for a potluck and they were eaten quickly. Made second time and substituted chocolate chips instead of raisins which tasted even better!

This is the same exact recipe we use here in Lancaster Co., PA. It's hard to beat! These are moist, and get eaten very quickly. We LOVE the cream cheese icing! TRY THIS RECIPE!! :)
