Old Fashioned Sour Cream Raisin Bars

I've loved these old fashioned sour cream raisin bars ever since my mom made them when I was a kid.  You start with an oatmeal crust, then add a delicious sour cream custard that is studded with plump, juicy raisins, and top it all off with a crumbly buttery topping.

Three beautiful layers of irresistible goodness.

Custard raisin filling - check!

Finally, the topping in place and the bars are ready to go in the oven.

And, time to eat!
