Sweet Pins: Rhubarb Dream Bars

Rhubarb.  You either love it or hate it.  I happen to LOVE it!

My brother-in-law sent a huge bundle of rhubarb home with my husband after a recent trip north.  Now when I say I love rhubarb, I love it in moderation.  The amount I have currently in my fridge is nuts!

Luckily, I’ve done some pinning and came across a few recipes that looked totally yumskis.  Some were savory and of course most were sweet.

This dreamy, creamy rhubarb recipe from Noshing with the Nolands completely caught my eye.  Especially the word…EASY.  Gotta love easy!

Rhubarb Dream Bars

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter

Filling

  • 4 lg. eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 cups diced rhubarb

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Line the bottom of a 9×13 pan with parchment paper.  Make sure the parchment goes up on the sides to make it easy to remove the squares later.  Put crust ingredients into a food processor.  Process until butter in incorporated and press crumbly mixture into the pan.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Crust will be pale in color.
  2. In the meantime, mix together eggs, sugar, flour and salt.  Fold in rhubarb.  Pour on the hot crust and continue to bake for 40-45 minutes.
  3. Let the bars cool and remove using the parchment paper.  Cut into squares.

 


 

These bars are creamy with a smidge of that wonderful, rhubarb tartness.  Delish!
