Rhubarb Crack Bars

Awhile back, I got a pretty amazing recipe.  It was for rhubarb bars — but it came with two big problems.

Hooray spring!

The first was that, once in a while, the bars would come out a little soggy. Randomly–go figure. 

It’s a problem any serious cook is familiar with — baking, alas, can be unpredictable.  Yes, that’s why they created the Great British Baking Show, full of drama and suspense.  No Salad Show could pull that off.

Easy prep!

But there was one even bigger problem.  Even failed, this recipe is so good, a person could eat the whole pan.   

Yup, two guesses why I call it Rhubarb Crack Bars

Mmm!

So, finally, I decided to tweak the recipe in two main ways — adjust the ingredients to dry it out, and cut it in half.  Then I reduced the butter in the crust slightly —  a small gesture, but it’s swimsuit season (and I just ate a pan…).

Finally, I learned never to make this with frozen rhubarb.  While some frozen “fruits” like blueberries can be popped frozen into a recipe and perform almost like fresh, frozen rhubarb sometimes gave me pulp and water.  Randomly of course. So, go ahead and freeze any extra rhubarb—then use it for this nice rhubarb sauce instead. 

But make these rhubarb crack bars while you can!

      Sorry to keep shoving rhubarb in your face David! If you go to the market for some, I will feel much better about it 🙂 If only they’d figure out how to send food online!

      Yes, I so understand the rhubarb abundance! Since planting it a few years back, I have been collecting recipes too! Not complaining of course 🙂
