Rhubarb Dessert Bars

For the crust:
1 c. flour
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/3 butter
For the filling:
1 1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
3 c. chopped rhubarb
For the topping:
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 c. butter
For the crust:
In a medium bowl combine the flour and powdered sugar, cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into bottom of an ungreased, 9x9 inch baking dish.
Bake at 350* F for 10 minutes. *Will only be partially baked.*
For the filling:
In a medium bowl, combine the filling ingredients and mix well using a fork. Pour over the partially baked crust.
For the topping:
In another medium size bowl combine the flour, sugar and the cinnamon. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the filling. Bake at 350* F for an additional 55-60 minutes, or until topping is light golden brown and the rhubarb is tender.
Delicious with ice cream! Even I could handle a bite! And I don't like "fruity" desserts!
God's Peace,
