Serves 36 | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons water
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup water
2 cups raisins
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 or 2 Tablespoons milk

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar.

Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture with water. Beat until crumbly.

Firmly press half into a greased 13-in x 9-in x 2-in baking pan; set the remaining oat mixture aside.

In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth; stir in raisins. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Cool to room temperature; spread over crust. Top with reserved oat mixture and pat down.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Ina small bowl, combine confectioner's sugar and cinnamon; stir in enough milk to reach drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bars. Cut and store in an airtight container.
