Butter Tart Squares

Make these... just dooo it!

1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup raisins
1 T. flour
3 eggs beaten
2 cups brown sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 T. vanilla
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350.

Using a pastry cutter, combine butter with dry ingredients until the mixture is crumbly (it will look similar to pastry dough before the addition of any liquid). Press the mixture into an ungreased 9x13 pan. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine raisins and flour. Mix well so that no raisins are still clumped together. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix eggs, brown sugar, baking powder, and vanilla. Slowly add melted butter. Add in raisins and stir well.
Pour topping mixture over shortbread base and bake for 35 minutes.

Allow to cool completely before cutting.

Note: I made the shortbread base in my food processor and it turned out fabulously. I also used room temp butter for the base.
