This is so delicious - I loved the crust which is like a nice shortbread. I used fresh rhubarb from our yard and made this exactly as directed. I cut it into about 16 squares and enjoyed it with a bit of whipped cream. Made for the Tasty Testers for ZWT9. Thanks Boomie! :)
We absolutely loved this, and it was a nice change of pace from other rhubarb desserts. We cut this into 9 squares, so it was more of a cake for us, and served with some whipped cream on the side. The filling was nice and custard-y and tart. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
Really loved these squares!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and the only other changes I made were to add a few shakes of cinnamon to the rhubarb brown sugar mixture and I did bake the crust for 15 minutes before adding the filling as another reviewer suggested. I had my first piece plain but plan to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for my next piece, so yummy!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.
