Hermit Bars

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup margarine or shortening
2 eggs
2 cup raisins
1/3 cup water
1 tsp baking soda
3 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts chopped
1/2 cup coconut (optional)

In a large bowl cream sugars, margarine and add 2 eggs. Cover
raisins with water and boil tender. Drain, reserve liquid and cool.
Add soda to raisin water.Add raisins to creamed mixture.

Sift dry ingredients together. Add dry ingredients with raisin
water to creamed mixture; stir to make a thick pliable dough. Divide
mixture in half.

Spread each half into a bar form, length of cookie sheet and about
1 1/2 inches wide. Bake in a 400F oven until golden and set about
12 to 15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet a few minutes and carefully
remove to rack to cool. Slice when cold. These are soft and chewy.

Notes: Bake in center rack. These tend to burn easily so bake on
insulated baking sheets. Freezes well. I have also omitted the eggs
with excellent results! Bars will be less cake-like but still tender
and chewy.
