Sour Cream Raisin Bars

  • Yield: 36 servings

"When I serve cookies at church, everyone asks for Sour Cream Raisin Bars. And a friend asks me to make a pan of these bars for her for Christmas. So I've made a lot of them!"

Ingredients

2cups raisins
1 1/2cups water
1cup packed dark brown sugar
1cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 3/4cups old-fashioned oats
1 3/4cups all-purpose flour
1teaspoon baking soda
3 egg yolks
1cup granulated sugar
1 1/2cups sour cream
2 1/2tablespoons cornstarch
1/2teaspoon ground cinnamon
1teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish.
  2. Combine raisins and water in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat 10 minutes; drain well and set aside to cool.
  3. Combine brown sugar, butter, oats, flour and soda in a medium bowl; mix well. Press half the mixture (about 2 cups) into the bottom of pan to form a crust. Bake 7 minutes, until partially cooked and slightly set.
  4. Combine egg yolks, granulated sugar, sour cream, cornstarch and cinnamon in a medium saucepan and stir until cornstarch is dissolved. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and resembles pudding, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in the raisins and vanilla.
  5. Pour onto crust and crumble remaining oat mixture evenly over top. Bake 25 minutes, or until set. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
