Peel, core and slice apples thinly. Use a food processor to slice apples,
since this makes the job easier. 1/2-inch slices should be about right.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease sides of 9 x 13-inch baking
pan. Prepare Streusel Topping: In medium bowl, mix flour, pecans, brown
sugar, slightly softened butter, vanilla and cinnamon until mixture comes
together. Shape into a ball.

Prepare crust: Into large bowl, measure flour, sugar and salt. Cut in 1/2
cup cold butter into small bits. With fingertips, blend butter into flour
mixture until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press evenly into bottom of
baking pan. Bake crust 15 to 20 minutes our until golden. Crust may crack
slightly but don't worry. Place apple slices in 10-inch skillet. Add
raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and 3 tablespoons butter. Cook 15 minutes
over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender. In cup,
mix cornstarch and lemon juice. Stir lemon juice mixture into apple slice
mixture and cook until thickened. This should happen quickly. Remove from
heat. Spoon apple mixture over crust. Break Streusel Topping into chunks
and scatter over apple mixture. Bake 30 minutes or until streusel is
browned. Cook completely, in pan, placed on wire rack. When cold cut into
16 pieces and serve. Serves 16. 284 calories per bar, according to
