My grandmother used to make something she called "raisin squares".
It was baked in a sheet pan with an upper and lower layer of pie crust.
The filling had raisins, butter, and apple pie type spices.
The raisins were whole black raisins and the filling was only about two raisins thick.
Once baked the the crust would be cut into about nine squares for individual servings.
It wasn't quite a pie and it wasn't quite a cookie. They were soooo good.
She was from Newfoundland but considered herself English, maybe the recipe originated there.
Does anyone know a recipe that comes close to this?
