 Rhubarb Custard Bars that we made for our Open House this weekend!

They are out of this world!!

Rhubarb Custard Bars

Crust
1 cup cold butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar

Filling
2 cups sugar
7 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 eggs, beaten
5 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed and drained

Topping
2 packages (3oz each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar; cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Press into a greased 13" x 9" baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, for filling, combine sugar and flour in a bowl.  Whisk in cream and eggs.  Stir in the rhubarb.  Pour over crust.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until custard is set.  Cool in pan on a wire rack.

For topping, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth; fold in whipped  cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth; fold in whipped cream.  Spread over top.  Cover and refrigerate.  Cut into bars.  Store in the refrigerator.

Makes 3 dozen  rich and gooey bars with a shortbread-like crust!

Hi Ladies,

Wow! thanks so much for the recipe. I will absolutely try making some. I have rhubarb lant and it grows like mushrooms.

I even cut & throw them away. Too much to freeze. I still have half fridge full of raspberries & new berries to come.

Have a wonderful SSS... hope I will stay & play with you.

One little thing can revive a guy, and that is a piece of rhubarb pie! Love the images and the recipe.

I have not been a fan of rhubarb - although I suppose that this vegetable (fruit?) has not been presented to me when I was young and impressionable. So, I like the sound of and wonderful texture. Cream cheese topping feeling and tasting of shortbread - a heavenly combo!

I'd love to visit your place, only wishing you were a one-hour (instead of 13) drive away from home. If we ever get to the 80/90 section of the Ohio Turnpike, well...

Love the shots, and the shadows are wonderful. Thanks for the recipe I will hold onto it and try it out when my rhubarb is in season.

A few months away alas.

Have a great week.

Rhubarb, rhubarb, what delicious delight!

My lips are puckering!! Seriously. I like rhubarb in it's natural flavor, the tart!! Adding sweetener to it just spoils it for me.

Great shadows.

It was nice to visit with you today....If you'd care to drop by and say hi, I'm leaving my Sunday's Link for you---HERE

Have a glorious week ahead.

My sister just made a rhubarb pie this week. When I was younger, living in MN, we had it all summer long. Love it.

I just love rhubarb and I'm drooling over those rhubarb custard bars! Yummo! I have some rhubarb growing and it's almost ready. I'll have to try your recipe out! Thanks for sharing it :)

Oh!! Those look so delicious! You know, I've NEVER eaten anything rhubarb before in my life! I'm not sure if what we get here in the produce dept. is any good. But, those bars look like they are worth the try. And then I noticed something about lavender in a previous post....
