I got this when I attended a bible school in Rocky Mount, VA. One of my fellow students passed it on to me, after I begged her for it. I have made these numerous times, and they are always great. Beware, if you don't like raisins, you won't like this. It has TONS of raisins in it. Also, I had to guess at how many servings this made, I can't remember.

I do like raisins, so I though these were great. I like the cream filling and the sweet and kind of sour thing going on. These were really simple to make and smelled divine while baking. I can't wait to have one for breakfast with coffee. Thanks for posting the recipe.
Being from ND, these are a favorite. I was going to post the recipe, when in fact this is the exact one I use. Made them tonight, and they turned out perfect. This is a delightful bar! You won't go wrong here. Thanks a bunch TexasKelly, they are the best!
My husband LOVED these bars!! It was my first time making these and they were a hit. I did lessen the amount of sugar also. Thanks for the recipe.
