|This chopped rhubarb makes me happy.|
Rhubarb Dream Bars
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups rhubarb, finely chopped
Combine 2 cups flour, powdered sugar and butter. Mix well and press into a greased 9″ x 13″ pan. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
Beat eggs, sugar, 1/2 cup flour and salt until well blended. Add rhubarb; mix. Spoon mixture onto baked crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes more. Cool and cut into bars.

The above recipe is where I started. What I actually did:
I changed the butter to solid coconut oil to make the crust layer with the flour and powdered sugar. I had some pastry flour which I wanted to use up, so I did.

For the eggs, I used 1/4 cup ground flax seeds stirred into 3/4 cup cool water which I combined well and set aside. For the sugar, I only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar since 2 cups seemed like a lot.
For the rest, I followed the recipe until the bars had cooked for 45 minutes. I did not think they were done so I cooked them another 10 minutes.

They taste rather nice. I think Dear One will enjoy them. Son #4 thought they were very edible.
