Rhubarb Bars


Rhubarb Bars

1 cup flour
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups finely chopped rhubarb

Combine 1 cup flour and powdered sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press into greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake at 350º F for 15 minutes or until light brown around edges.

Beat eggs and stir in 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and salt. Add vanilla and rhubarb. Put over bottom crust. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

I got this recipe years ago online, and made it for the first time today. It is delicious! Plenty sweet to balance the rhubarb tartness.

  1. Hmmm, I would love to try these. I haven't had rhubarb since I was about 5 years old, and at the time couldn't grasp why it was so prized because it was very *bitter* to a little girl with a sweet tooth!

    I would love to try baking with it, now, as an adult!

  2. Nan,
    Off topic, I know, but just a quick note to say I finished and passed on Cottage for Sale. I loved it and was thrilled to recognize so many places. Thanks!

  3. If you add strawberries or plenty of sugar, I bet you'll love it Lizzie. Please post any recipe you make on your blog. I'm always looking for new rhubarb desserts.

    Kat, I thought you might get a kick out of the book!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
