Strawberry Rhubarb Bars

My sisters and I like to bake when we get together. It’s just something fun we all enjoy. My older-younger sister had recently tried some strawberry-rhubarb pie and really wanted to make something with those flavors. After searching the Internet, we came across this recipe and decided to try it. I’m so glad we did. These bars are perfectly sweet and tart and so easy to make.

Strawberry Rhubarb Squares

Yield: 20 bars

Ingredients:

Crust and Topping
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
2/3 cup chopped nuts
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Strawberry-Rhubarb Filling
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup flour
2 Tbsp milk
4 eggs
4 cups sliced strawberries (2 pints)
4 cups sliced rhubarb (8 stalks)

Directions:

Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and vanilla with spoon. Stir in 2 cups flour, the oats, nuts, baking soda and salt until crumbly (we needed to add more oats and flour, probably another cup of each. We also used our hands to mix this). Reserve 2 cups crumbly mixture. Press remaining crumbly mixture in ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan.

In large bowl, mix granulated sugar, 2/3 cup flour, the milk and eggs with spoon until smooth. Fold in strawberries and rhubarb. Spoon filling onto crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumbly mixture.

Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until topping is golden brown and filling is set. Cool slightly, about 30 minutes. For serving pieces, cut into 5 rows by 4 rows. Serve with whipped cream. Store covered in refrigerator.

    Lactaid is my best friend. I have spare pills in the car, in Hubby’s wallet, in my purse and desk. Can’t ever be too prepared! I have had their lactose free flavors and they’re quite tasty. I wish they had more than one a month though!

    I love the idea of using the cone method for ice cream cupcakes. I hadn’t thought of that. That strawberry down the middle of the cupcake is so perfect! I’m so glad you entered again!

    Those cupcakes look scrumptious! Oh, and you’ve gotta try Purely Decadent made with Coconut Milk Ice Cream! It’s rich and creamy, a lot like gelatto!

    I agree with you about the non-dairy ice creams available in stores. However, If you have an ice cream maker vegan chick-0-stick ice cream is unbelievably rich, creamy and delicious.

    Here is the recipe http://couldntbeparve.blogspot.com/2008/09/chick-o-stick-ice-cream_04.html

    Hey, these cupcakes sound awesome! I use to be Lactose Int., but I found the best cure ever & seriously have been L.I. cured for 7 years. I could not give up my dairy & use to take 3 Lactaid every time I ate.I heard about “Lactogen” on the radio on the way home from a trip. I would do anything to get rid of my L.I. so it was $90.00 at the time so I said what the heck I spent $200.00 a year on Lactaid. I was floored that it worked & 7 years later still no signs. I drink milk every morning, cheese everyday, & ice cream when ever. It retrains your body to except lactose, so for 42 days while you take it (a mix to drink with water) you have to stay away from all dairy & anything with dairy in it. I just went to the health food store during that time. I am sure you can find it on the web. Lactogen is the name

    This is my second post, it erased my first. But for all you suffering with Lactose Int. try Lactogen it really works I have been cured for going on 7 years now. It was only $90.00 when I tried it & I was spending $200 a year on Lactaid at the time. I now can drink milk every morning, & eat cheese every day & ice cream when ever. It is not an on going thing you take it once for 43 days & that is it.
