Quick Raisin Bars

These bar cookies are yet another recipe passed down from my grandma.  Don’t grandmas make the best food.  These remind me of an oatmeal cookie or a spiced cake bar.  It makes plenty to share.  Luckily I live within a mile of my parents, in-laws, grandparents, and have some amazing neighbors so I am never without someone to share with.
