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!

This is a recipe I grew up with my grandmother making, and they are delicious! I had not had them in years until my cousin brought them to a family reunion a few years ago. They are a little tedious to make, but well worth the effort!
