      Although I'm a dedicated raisin fan, I don't know how close what I made with this recipe comes to the original raisin squares, but I can tell you this ~ These dessert squares are VERY TASTY! I did use vegetable shortening instead of lard, but other than that, the recipe was followed! Definitely a keeper & worth making again & again!
