  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Cover raisins with hot water and let soak until plump, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, stir together oats , flour, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon , and salt . Cut in butter with a pastry cutter. Pat half of this crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Bake the crust for 7 minutes, then remove from the oven.

  4. Meanwhile, whisk together the egg yolks, sour cream , granulated sugar, and cornstarch in a saucepan over medium heat. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla and the raisins.

  5. Pour the filling over the partially baked crust. Sprinkle the remaining oats-brown sugar crumb mixture on top of the filling. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top has browned. Let cool to room temperature, then cut into bars to serve.

  6. Yield: 24 bars Note: These are extremely rich so you may wish to cut the bars smaller.
