This dessert bar is a long time favorite recipe that comes from a dairy farm where three generations still enjoy it.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Place raisins and water into 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until raisins are soft and plump. Drain; cool 30 minutes. Set aside.
Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, butter and baking soda in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press 3 cups
crumb mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan.
Combine sugar, sour cream, egg yolks and cornstarch in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in raisins.
Spread filling over crumb crust; sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake 25-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely; cut into bars.
Dietary Fiber: 1g
1 tsp vanilla added to the filling. Make sure the filling does not scorch while cooking.
Absolutely terrible...all the waste for expensive ingrediants. I had these bars once before but obviously not this recipe.
Oh my, these are really delicious! I baked mine for 30 minutes.
