Aunt Grace's Raisin Water Cookies

Although this is a recipe that my favorite aunt gave me, it originated from my grandfather who was a professional baker. I am not sure how old the recipe is, but my aunt has had it since 1958 and we know it is at least 20 years older than that. These are not actually cookies, but a cake like brownie or bar type dessert. My aunt told me that these were one of my grandfather's special recipes. These will get you many compliments and requests for the recipe. This will make 2 13x9 pans. A real treat!
