Country Rhubarb Dessert

Country Rhubarb Dessert

Made this tonight and it was VERY good. Kind of a 'lemon bar' type concoction but with rhubarb instead of lemon.

2 cups fresh rhubarb, washed and cut into 1/2" pieces
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup confectioner's sugar
3 eggs
1-1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
whipped cream
strawberries for garnish

Blend flour and softened butter until like coarse crumbs. Add confectioner's sugar. Press into buttered 9" square pan or 10" x 7" x 1/2" rectangular pan.

Bake at 350° for 15 minutes until golden.

When crust is baking, beat eggs. Add 1-1/4 cup sugar, very gradually. Beat until very light and fluffy, 5 minutes on high with electric mixer.

At low speed, add flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Fold in rhubarb with spatula.

Pour over baked crust. Spread evenly. Bake at 350°  for 40 minutes until light brown and top feels dry. Serve cooled, with whipped cream and strawberries.
