Rhubarb Bars

Rhubarb Bars

If your garden is like mine, it is filled with rhubarb right now. And I’m loving it!!

Rhubarb has a strong, tart flavor that can be sweetened with sugar to make wonderful desserts. Or it can also be paired with other fruits for sweetening, most often strawberries and apples. I love to make these bars because you get the full flavor of the rhubarb. The crust is like a shortbread, that is crunchy and sweet. The topping  mixes with the crust while baking making it crunchy on the bottom, soft in the middle, and creamy on top. You will fall in love with sweet yet tart nature of this bar!
