Easy Rhubarb Bars


I love rhubarb and am lucky to have a booming crop in my backyard. Whipping up a batch of rhubarb bars seemed like the perfect treat for a Friday afternoon.

Rhubarb is truly a unique piece of produce. Technically a vegetable, people in the U.S. usually consider it a fruit. Freshly picked, its tart stalk can be nibbled plain or dipped in sugar, but I think it’s best turned into bars, pies, cakes and crisps. Who doesn’t love a little dessert?

This simple recipe comes from Margo59 on Food.com and is called Rhubarb Dream Bars. They’re so simple, you’ll get your rhubarb fix in no time!

Here’s Margo59’s recipe:


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine


  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups thinly sliced rhubarb


  1. In food processor, mix together the crust ingredients.
  2. Press into a 15 x 10-inch pan.
  3. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes (crust will be very light in color).
  4. Meanwhile, combine eggs, sugar, flour and salt; beat together.
  5. Fold in rhubarb.
  6. Spread filling mixture on hot crust; return to oven to bake 40-45 minutes longer.
  7. Cool; cut into bars.
