1 cups flour
cup brown sugar
cup butter, room temperature

4 eggs
2 tsps. vanilla
pinch salt
⅔ cup sugar
⅔ cup corn syrup
2 cups raisins
cup flour

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 9" x 13" pan. Measure base ingredients in a bowl and mix until well blended. Press mixture into prepared pans. Bake in centre of preheated oven until light brown and set, about 12-14 minutes. Remove pans to rack while preparing the filling. In a bowl whisk eggs with vanilla and salt until frothy. Beat in sugar. Gradually beat in remaining flour. Stir in corn syrup and raisins. Pour the filling over the partly cooked base. Immediately return pans to oven and continue baking until the squares are brown and start to pull away from the edge, about 20-30 minutes. Remove the pan to the rack to cool. Squares will sink slighlty and the filling will set as they cool. Store in covered container in refrigerator for 3 days or freeze up to 6 months.
