I believe that my mother received this recipe from my great aunt who is in her mid 90's. I get wonderful comments on these bars every time I make them.
Soak raisins in some hot water until soft. Then drain water off of raisins and cool. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar well. Add the oatmeal, soda, and flour. Mix well and pat 1/2 of mixture in a 9"x13" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes.
In a large saucepan, cook the egg yolks, sour cream, sugar and cornstarch. Cook until thick, stirring constantly. Add raisins and vanilla.
Pour cooked mixture over the crust and sprinkle remaining crumbs over top of mixture. Bake for 30 more minutes.
