HONEY RAISINS BARS

Another old Southern Indiana Recipe from the days of my youth--too many years ago!

3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 egg
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnmon
1/2 tsp soda
2 cups uncooked oats
1 cup seedless raisins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.

Cream the honey, sugar, butter and egg together. Sift the flour, salt, cinnamon, and flour together; stir into the creamed mixture. Add the oats and raisins, stir in. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the greased cookie sheets. Bake on the upper shelf of the oven for 12 to 14 minutes at 375 degrees. Cookies should be lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.

I love this website and am just curious - these are called bars in the title but directions indicate they are drop - were there modifications to an old recipe or was it just an error made on the original?

Yes, this recipe was adapted years ago to drop cookies but they never changed the titile. Since I don't make changes to these old recipes, I left it, too. I should have made a note under the title. Glad you enjoy the site and hope you continue to find recipes you enjoy.
