This is very much like date squares or as we knew it, matrimonial squares.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 3 cups rhubarb cut into 1/2 inch squares
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (not quick)
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
Combine the first four ingredients and cook until it becomes thick. Cool completely.
Combine crust ingredients and pat two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 9 x 9 inch pan. Add the filling and top with the remaining crumbs. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
Cool before attempting to cut.
Be sure to have some vanilla ice cream or whipping cream on hand. Darn, this sound so good I am going to make some.
