Makes about 24

2 cups flour
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups rhubarb, chopped

Combine 2 cups flour and powdered sugar. Cut in butter, until crumbs form. Press in bottom of jelly roll pan. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Blend eggs, sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and salt. Fold in rhubarb. Spread over crust. Bake 40-45 minutes in 350F oven. Cool. Cut into squares.

Note: NOTES : Works well in 9x13 in pan as well, but center does not cook all the way through after 45 minutes, which leaves it moist and custardy. Very good!

Would make this again.
These are supurb. Tried it because it looked easy and lighter than others. That was last month. We have served them twice a week and shared with neighbors and church since. Yes a young man came to dinner last week and didn't like Rhubarb; to be polite he took a bar then he ate two larger bars. 5 stars

These bars are delicious. I take them to work, and they are very popular. I tried making these in a square pan (approx.10 x 10) but the center never cooked enough. I have used an oblong pan (approx. 8 x 11) and they turned out very well. I have a huge rhubarb plant in my garden, and I chop and freeze the rhubarb during the summer so I can make these all year. 5 stars

These bars are gorgeous--maybe the Christmas part comes from the red and green of the rhubarb? I made them with fresh rhubarb in a 15 X 20 (jelly roll) pan. They are excellent when cold--not as flavorful warm. The recipe is very true--the crust is a bit thicker than I prefer, but they are similar to lemon bars and the bars might be soggy if the crust were thinner. I agree with Nadine--even non-rhubarbers love them. 5 stars

I love rhubarb! jams, pies, you name it it's better with rhubarb. These bar cookies are definitely DREAMY! I definitely recommend sticking with fresh rhubarb! I just discovered a nice sized rhubarb patch at the house we just moved into and have big plans for rhubarb this year! LOTS of dream bars, as they disappear very quickly at our place! 5 stars
