Cook raisins in about 1 cup water for 10 minutes. Let cool. Sift dry ingredients together. Beat remaining ingredients well and add dry mixture. Drain the liquid off the raisins, and add enough water to make 1 cup. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the sugar-butter alternately with the raisins juice. Add the cooked raisins and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Mix well. Spread on greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until it tests done with a toothpick.
While still hot, frost with a powdered sugar glaze. Add milk gradually to 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla to make a thick glaze. Spread on bars. When cool, cut into squares.
