Ingredients

pre-heat oven to 350 degrees f

BASE INGREDIENTS

1 c
all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp
granulated sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened

FILLING INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 c
packed brown sugar
1 c
chopped walnuts
1/2 c
raisins
3
eggs, eaten
3 Tbsp
all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp
baking power
1 tsp
good vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare the base: In a small bowl, mix together the flour and sugar. Using two knives or a pastry blender or your fingers, cut butter in until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press evenly into 9-inch square, ungreased pan. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Place pan on wire rack.
2
Prepare the Filling: In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, walnuts and raisins. Add eggs, flour, baking powder and vanilla and beat until well blended.
3
Spread evenly over hot base and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely. (The filling may seem a bit jiggly at first but will become firm when completely cooled).
