Rhubarb Squares

This recipe came from a fellow CSA Member of "Cooper's CSA Farm & Maze" and it is nothing short of excellent!  My family absolutely loves this treat and eagerly look forward to the springtime when we receive fresh rhubarb in our CSA boxes!!!

3 cups rhubarb, chopped in 1/2" cubes
1 1/2 cups of white sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, cold and cut into 1/2" cubes

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Combine filling ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook until thickened.  Set aside.
  • Combine the first 6 crust ingredients in a mixer and mix well.  Add butter and process until mixture is crumbly.
  • Pat 2/3 of the crust into a greased 8"x12" pan.  Add filling.  Sprinkle the remaining crumbs evenly over the top.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Cool and keep in refrigerator until ready to enjoy!
