Raisin Spice Bars

These make a LOT of bars… perfect for a hungry crew!
1 cup raisins
1.5 cups hot water
1/2 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg

1.5 cups powdered sugar
1 tbs. melted butter
1-2 tbs. milk

Cookies:  Soak raisins in hot water to plump and soften them.  Add butter, egg and baking soda to the raisins and water.  Stir in flower, sugar and spices.  Spread batter in a greased 15 x 10 x 1 inch jelly roll pan.  Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.  Cool. 
Glaze:  Combine powdered sugar and butter.  Add enough milk to make a thin glaze.  Spread over cooled bars and let set before cutting. 
Makes about 4 dozen.
