#2589 - Raisin Crumb Squares

(by Shirley McNevich)

2 1/2 cups raisins
1 cup plain applesauce
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups Quaker quick oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup Baker's angelflake coconut
3/4 cup butter

In a saucepan add raisins--cover them with water, bring to a boil, cook for 5 minutes, then drain the raisins. In a bowl add drained raisins, applesauce, lemon juice and cinnamon--stir well. In a separate bowl add oats, flour, white sugar, coconut and butter--mix with a pastry blender to make crumbs. Measure 2 1/2 cups of the oat crumb mixture and save if for later. Press the rest of the oat crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 cake pan. Spread the applesauce mixture over the oat mixture. Sprinkle the saved 2 1/2 cups of oat crumb mixture all over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until browned. Cool completely.
