Reviews for Sour Cream Raisin Squares
"Very tasty recipe and easy to put together. I used dried figs in place of the raisins."
"The topping was as irresistible as the moist and flavorful filling. All the taste of a sour cream & raisin pie without all the extra work!"
"I was out of raisins and substituted Craisins instead. I think any dried fruit would be fine. These are great, flavorful, very rich, & dense bars. Excellent recipe that is a keeper for sure!"
