How to make it
- In a large bowl cream sugars, margarine and add 2 eggs. Cover raisins with water and boil tender. Drain, reserve liquid and cool. Add soda to raisin water.Add raisins to creamed mixture.
- Sift dry ingredients together.
- Add dry ingredients with raisin water to creamed mixture; stir to make a thick pliable dough.
- Divide mixture in half.
- Spread each half into a bar form, length of cookie sheet and about 1 1/2 inches wide.
- Bake in a 400F oven until golden and set about 12 to 15 minutes.
- Cool on cookie sheet a few minutes and carefully remove to rack to cool.
- Slice when cold.
- These are soft and chewy.
- Notes: Bake in center rack- these tend to burn easily so bake on insulated baking sheets.
- Freezes well.
- I have also omitted the eggs with excellent results!
- Bars will be less cakey but still very tender and chewy.
- Either way these are excellent!!!!
