This was amazing! I followed the advice of others by adding more rhubarb. I used just over 2 1/2 cups, and I'm glad I did. With adding this extra rhubarb, it does need to cook for at least 40-45 minutes. I know some people cautioned to check it earlier than the directions. I was amazed at how tender the rhubarb was considering that it was raw when it went in the oven. I did make a few alterations. I used light sour cream, I cut back the brown sugar by 1/4 of a cup, and for the topping, I used half the sugar, and used Sweet'n Low for the other half. Five stars!



These bars are very tasty. Be warned: when you are reading the printed recipe it can be confusing; the list of ingredients read from left to right (that's how you read it to coincide with the steps). The only change I made was I whirled frozen rhubarb in my food processor because I just don't like stringy foods and they turned out wonderful. They were cake-like and golden brown. Absolutely perfect with a cup of coffee or tea on this very damp, chilly, rainy day. Also, your house will smell marvelous while these bake! Enjoy.



These were very good but I would like to have had a little more rhubarb in the bars. Several of my bites had no rhubarb in them in the squares I ate.
