2 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups
1 3/4 cups
These were teriffic tasting. I tried very hard to make them a little healthier and lower calorie. I made the following substitutions with great success: 3/4 c. spleda for the 1 c. of white sugar, EggBeaters for the eggs, low fat sour cream, reduced from 16 tablespoons of butter to 14 and used half real butter & half light butter. Even then, when you cut them into 24 squares (which I think is a better serving size than 30 squares), they are still pretty high calorie. Next time I'll probably cut the crust/crumble mix down by a 1/4 and use less crumble on top. I did say next time, because these are so tasty I will have to make them again.
As another reviewer said, its a little sweet; next time I will cut both sugars to 3/4 and the flour to 1 1/4. I did add extra cinnamon to the filling, it wasn't enough so next time I'll add some to the crust. Mine also took a lot longer than 20 min, more like 30+.
Wow! What more can I say? I loved this and my family raved about it. It's not too sweet and the 'crumble' was just right. I'm going to try this using a date filling in the next one. Refrigerate it before cutting and you will get nice clean squares. I have added this to my 'Mom's Recipe Book' and it will be passed on to my daughters and daughter in law's. Thanks for sharing.
Delish! And Easy! I found this recipe in an attempt to use up some sour cream and raisins I had on hand, and I'm not disappointed. As other reviewers suggested, I cut down to just 3/4 cup of sugar and 1 1/2 cup of flour to cut "too much" sweetness. I also added an extra sprinkle or 2 of cinnamon to both the filling and the crust. Will definitely make again! Bon Appetit!
These were excellent! I thought the recipe was a bit unclear as to how long the raisin/egg mixture was supposed to cook, and didn't see how a mere 20 minutes would be long enough to cook the eggs, so I cooked it slowly over medium heat until it was thickened. I then had to carefully smooth it over the crumb crust (being careful not to dislodge the crumbs int he process). I baked it for the usual time. I'll definitely be making these again because my family was upset there weren't any leftovers from the church function I took them to!
Fabulous...stupendous! My family loved this dessert. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins because we don't like raisins, but this dish was to die for. Bravo to the chef.
Everyone asks for the recipe--it's good for using up raisins that are "less than moist."
As I am typing this, I just finished eating a bar of my 2nd batch. Yes, 2nd. I made my first batch yesterday and it was marvelous. Today, I made my 2nd batch using all healthy ingredients just to see if there is a difference. I used whole wheat flour, egg substitute, fat-free sour cream, light margerine and Splenda. And guess what?? It is still marvelous. Now I can enjoy these bars without all the guilt! Thanks for the recipe.
