Original recipe yields 15 bar cookies


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, butter, 1/2 cup of flour and oats until crumbly. Press into the bottom of a 9 inch square pan. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
  3. In the same bowl, mix together the eggs, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, salt, baking powder and vanilla until well blended. Stir in the raisins, coconut and cherries, adding a little bit of the cherry juice to keep it from becoming stiff. Spread over the baked crust in the pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and lightly browned. Cool and cut into bars.

Delicious, not too sweet. I used golden raisins.

Hard to go wrong with so much butter and brown sugar! I followed the recipe exactly, though baked the bars for 35 minutes, and they still seemed under cooked. Because mine were under cooked, the middle was gooey, which some people might like. I de-frosted sour cherries from last year's harvest, though the cherry flavor didn't come through as much as I would have liked. Maybe next time I'll add more cherries or add almond extract.
