  1. In a mixing bowl, combine butter and brown sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add egg; mix well. Gradually beat in coffee. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add to the coffee mixture; mix well. Stir in raisins and pecans.
  2. Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile for icing, in a bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough water to achieve spreading consistency. Spread over warm bars.

Not bad - I didn't have raisins so we made it with dried cranberries and used half cin & half allspice. They were a quick good treat for my 2 yr olds.

Simple, and good. The raisins made it, and I used a cup. I used heated oj which I soaked the raisins in, instead of coffee. Would bake it for 16 min...little overbaked.

These were absolutely YUMMY!!!! My husband loved them as well!!!
