These are distinctly Canadian.
- 2 T brown sugar
- 1-1/4 c flour
- 1/2 c butter
- 1-1/2 c brown sugar
- 1/4 c butter, melted
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 T white vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 c raisins
To make base
In a small bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Then blend in flour. Mixture will resemble very fine crumbs.
Lightly grease a square 9x9 in. pan.(I use a square springform pan) Press crumb mixture into bottom of pan. Prick with fork in a few places. Bake for 10 minutes. Then remove from oven.
Soak the raisins in boiling water for 10 minutes, until they become plump.
In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the filling, drain raisins and add. Pour over base.
Bake for 35 minutes approximately until top is brown.
Remove to wire rack, and let cool. Run a knife around the edge to loosen. When cool, carefully remove from pan. This is why I like the springform pan, because the top on these squares can crack quite easily.
