Rhubarb Bars

This is very much like date squares or as we knew it, matrimonial squares.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • 3 cups rhubarb cut into 1/2 inch squares
  • 1  1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla
  • 1  1/2 cups rolled oats (not quick)
  • 1  1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter

Combine the first four ingredients and cook until it becomes thick.  Cool completely.

Combine crust ingredients and pat two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 9 x 9 inch pan.  Add the filling and top with the remaining crumbs.  Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Cool before attempting to cut.

Be sure to have some vanilla ice cream or whipping cream on hand. Darn, this sound so good I am going to make some.
