"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!"
Elsie Probasco, Bartley, Nebraska
Makes 36 Bars


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

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish.

2. Combine the raisins and 1 1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes; drain well and set aside to cool.

3. Combine the brown sugar, butter, oats, flour, and baking soda in a medium bowl; mix well using a spoon. Press half of the oat mixture (about 2 cups) into the bottom of the prepared pan to form a crust. Bake for 7 minutes until partially cooked and slightly set.

4. Combine the egg yolks, granulated sugar, sour cream, cornstarch, and cinnamon, if desired, in a medium saucepan and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved. Cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens and resembles pudding, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the cooked raisins and vanilla.

5. Pour into the crust and crumble the remaining oat mixture evenly over the top. Bake for 25 minutes, or until set. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
