   Chewy Sour Cream Craisin Bars
by Shirley Johnson, Warrens

Crust:
1-1/4 cups quick oatmeal
1-1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup butter
Filling:
4 eggs yolks (keep whites for topping)
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1-1/2 cups craisins
1/2 cup raisins
2 cups sour cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Topping:
4 egg whites
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup pecans, chopped

In a medium bowl mix oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, and baking soda. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press into bottom of an ungreased 9x13-inch pan. Bake 15 minutes in preheated 350-degree oven. In a medium saucepan, mix together egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, craisins, raisins, sour cream, and vanilla. Over medium heat, bring to a boil for about 1–2 minutes until thick, stirring constantly. Pour over baked crust. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, salt, and brown sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling to edges. Sprinkle pecans on top. Bake 15–20 minutes until golden brown. Cool and refrigerate until serving. Yields 20 bars.
