Hermit Bars

Ingredients
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup margarine or shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut (optional)
Instructions

In a large bowl cream sugars, margarine and add 2 eggs. Cover raisins with water and boil tender. Drain, reserve liquid and cool. Add soda to raisin water.Add raisins to creamed mixture. Sift dry ingredients together. Add dry ingredients with raisin water to creamed mixture; stir to make a thick pliable dough. Divide mixture in half. Spread each half into a bar form, length of cookie sheet and about 1 1/2 inches wide. Bake in a 400F oven until golden and set about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet a few minutes and carefully remove to rack to cool. Slice when cold. These are soft and chewy. Notes: Bake in center rack. These tend to burn easily so bake on insulated baking sheets. Freezes well. I have also omitted the eggs with excellent results! Bars will be less cake-like but still tender and chewy.
