Rhubarb Pie Bars

Rhubarb 054


Okay Rhubarb lovers – this one’s for you!  My mom’s Rhubarb Custard Pie has always been my personal favorite.  I love the mix of the tart rhubarb combined with the creamy filling – perfection.  These Rhubarb Pie Bars have that same great flavor in an easy-to-make bar.  A simple shortbread crust is a yummy stand-in for the pie crust and the taste is just like the amazing pie.

It seems we can never get enough rhubarb recipes in our family – we are always looking for another fun idea to try.  Some other great favorites include Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce, Rhubarb Crumb Cake, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, Sparkling Rhubarb Lemonade, and this fabulous Rhubarb Cheesecake Pie.  I’d love to know your favorite Rhubarb recipe.


Rhubarb Pie Bars


For the crust
1 1/2 cups flour
¾ cup cold butter, cubed
¼ cup powdered sugar


For the filling
3 large eggs, beaten
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
4 cups rhubarb, diced



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and powdered sugar. Using a pastry blender cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Pat the crumbs into a well greased 9 x 13 in baking pan. Bake the crust 10-12 min or until lightly browned.

While the crust is in the oven, mix together eggs, sugar, flour, salt, and nutmeg.

Gently stir in the diced rhubarb. Pour the rhubarb mixture over the hot crust. Return bars to the hot oven. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees and bake for 40-45 min or until the filling is set.

Cool and cut into bars.
