Spring-time is perfect for the sweet and tart tang of Rhubarb Desserts. Here is an easy recipe that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
For the Crust
2 cups flour
1 cup butter (softened)
1/4 powdered sugar
Press into a 9 X 13 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
For the Topping
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour
Stir in 4 cups of diced rhubarb
When the crust is done, carefully take the hot pan out of the oven and pour the topping over the hot crust. Continue baking for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven, cool and serve (yes, of course with vanilla ice cream!)
*This recipe is also great with add-ins, like strawberries or other sweet berries! Just make sure that your total fruit equals 4 cups.
Rhubarb is one of the easiest perennials to grow! There is a reason nearly every western homestead is surrounded with this delicious "fruit".
