Raisin Filled Bars

    50 minutes

    I love to make these moist filled bars. It's also good for using up raisins which are less than moist.

    These were teriffic tasting. I tried very hard to make them a little healthier and lower calorie. I made the following substitutions with great success: 3/4 c. spleda for the 1 c. of white sugar, EggBeaters for the eggs, low fat sour cream, reduced from 16 tablespoons of butter to 14 and used half real butter & half light butter. Even then, when you cut them into 24 squares (which I think is a better serving size than 30 squares), they are still pretty high calorie. Next time I'll probably cut the crust/crumble mix down by a 1/4 and use less crumble on top. I did say next time, because these are so tasty I will have to make them again.  -  05 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    As another reviewer said, its a little sweet; next time I will cut both sugars to 3/4 and the flour to 1 1/4. I did add extra cinnamon to the filling, it wasn't enough so next time I'll add some to the crust. Mine also took a lot longer than 20 min, more like 30+.  -  12 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wow! What more can I say? I loved this and my family raved about it. It's not too sweet and the 'crumble' was just right. I'm going to try this using a date filling in the next one. Refrigerate it before cutting and you will get nice clean squares. I have added this to my 'Mom's Recipe Book' and it will be passed on to my daughters and daughter in law's. Thanks for sharing.  -  14 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
