Sour Cream Oatmeal Raisin Bars

  • Yield 20 servings
  • Prep 40 minutes
  • Cook 30 minutes

This rich bar resembles sour cream raisin pie, without the meringue.


1 3/4 cups oatmeal
1 3/4 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons corn starch
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups California raisins
2 cups sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a small mixer bowl, mix oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, soda and softened butter or margarine until crumbly. Press 2/3 of the mixture into a 13 x 9-inch pan. Reserve 1/3 for topping.
  3. Bake crust 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  4. In a medium saucepan, add filling ingredients. Cook until thickened over medium heat, stirring constantly (the mixture can burn easily).
  5. Pour thickened filling over the baked crust. Top with reserved crumbs.
  6. Bake 20 minutes. Let cool. Cut into small bars. Leftovers should be refrigerated.
