Rhubarb Dream Bars

Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour (we use ww)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon (og cane) sugar
1 cup (og cane) sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (we used ww)
4 cups finely chopped rhubarb
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (we used neufchatel)
1/2 cup (og cane) sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream (we substitute yogurt)
1 tablespoon (og cane) sugar
Directions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease an 11×7-inch baking dish.
In a bowl, mix together 1 cup flour, the softened butter, and 1 tablespoon sugar until well combined; press into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
Bake the crust in the preheated oven until it starts to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove the crust. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F.
Using the same bowl, thoroughly mix 1 cup sugar with 1/4 cup flour; stir in the rhubarb and toss to coat. Spread the rhubarb mixture over the baked crust. Using the same bowl, mash the cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar, and the egg until the mixture is creamy; spread over the rhubarb.
Bake in the oven until the rhubarb is bubbling and the topping is set, about 35 minutes.
In the same bowl, mix sour cream with 1 tablespoon of sugar; spread over the hot dessert. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars. Refrigerate leftovers.

  1. These sound awesome! Unfortunately, I'll have to wait for a few days since the heat is rolling in, but will make them as soon as the next cool front comes through. Have you made these in a 9×13 or an 8" square pan? If so, what was your experience?
    Thank you for this wonderful rhubarb idea! I can't wait to try them!!
