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.

      If you make it, let me know what beer/fruit combo you use. I can’t wait to try different combinations.

    I just made it last night and used frozen strawberries and Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat. Amazing!!! So creamy without any dairy. I’ll be posting the recipe on my site next week.

      First of all, I haven’t had that beer, but it sounds tasty on it’s own. I’m sure it was delicious with the strawberries in this sorbet. So glad you enjoyed it. Let me know when your post goes up!

      I loved it too. Even though when you say Strawberry and Beer Sorbet people kind of look at you like you’re crazy….

    This sounds awesome and I know my husband would love it but we don’t have an ice cream maker. Is there an alternative way to make it?

    I work in a brewpub in Boulder. I’m gonna try this out with fresh peaches, honey, and a strong belgian golden ale. I’ll let you know how it goes.

      Oh man – that sounds awesome. I have a TON of peaches in my house right now… I just made a blueberry variety the other night.
