Rhubarb dream bars (TNT)




Crust
2c flour
3/4c powdered sugar
1c butter

Filling:
4c diced rhubarb
4 or 5 eggs (I've always used five)
2c sugar
1/2c flour
1/2t salt

Directions:
Cut the butter into the flour and sugar mixture with
a pastry blender until it makes pea sized granules.

Press into a jelly roll pan, 10" x 15", or for thicker
bars, a 9" x 13" pan.

Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

After baking the crust, butter the edges of the pan.

---------------
Spread the rhubarb evenly on the baked crust.

In a blender, mix the eggs, sugar, flour and salt to
make the custard mixture.

Pour the custard mixture on the rhubarb.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 - 45 minutes (10 x 15" pan)
or for 50-55 minutes (9 x 13" pan).

I don't see why you couldn't. I think I'd try it without those little paper cups tho, the crust might get soggy being enclosed for storing.

Just press a little of the dough into each cup and depending on what size muffins (regular, mini, humongeous) you're making, add a layer of the diced rhubarb and fill with the custard. Start checking doneness of custard after ~28-30 minutes?

will be interested to read other's ideas on this.

Off subject just a minute - :D
Oh, you're from Issaquah!! I used to live there - early 90s. Drove thru recently, OMG can't believe it's the same town!!
