Easy Mix Cookie Bars Revisited

1/2 cup Egg Beaters
2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Smart Balance Shortening
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup raisins
1 cup boiling water
2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat bran (millers wheat)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder

In order listed, measure all ingredients into 3-4 qt. mixing bowl. Do NOT stir until all are in the bowl. Beat thoroughly. My recipe sais spread out 1/4 inch thick on greased 17-1/2 x 11-1/2 x 2 inch cookie pan. (I used one pan 9" x 12" x 2" & one 8" square pan.)
Bake in 375 degree oven about 20 minutes or to a rich brown. Drizzle confecioner's frosting over cookies while hot. Cut into 40 2 inch bars.

It actually looked more like a nice moist cake & I didn't cut it all ahead of time.

CONFECTIONER'S FROSTING: Combine 1-1/4 cup powdered sugar with 1 tsp. vanilla & 1/4 cup liquid (may be milk, water or orange juice.) Mix until smooth & spread on cake or cookies.
