Raisin Cinnamon Bars

This recipe comes from Cooking Light

I love this recipe for two reasons: 1st- these bars taste great and 2nd- you do not have to wait until they are completely cooled to frost them :)

serves 18 ( 4 points + )

¼ c. butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 egg
½ c. hot brewed coffee
1-½ c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
½ c. golden raisins
¼ c. chopped pecans

1 c. powdered sugar
½ tsp. vanilla
2-3 T. hot water

In a mixing bowl, combine butter and brown sugar until crumbly. Add egg and mix well. Gradually beat in coffee. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to the coffee mixture and mix well. Stir in raisins and pecans. Transfer to a 13 x 9 pan coated with cooking spray. 
Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, for icing, combine powdered sugar , vanilla and enough water to achieve spreading consistency. Spread over warm bars.
