  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix 1 cup flour, butter, and confectioners' sugar together in a bowl; pack the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until the crust hardens slightly and is very fragrant, but not yet browned, about 15 minutes.
  4. Whisk brown sugar, eggs, white sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and salt together in a bowl until completely smooth; add rhubarb and stir to coat. Pour the rhubarb mixture over the crust.
  5. Bake in oven until the rhubarb mixture sets, about 40 minutes; cool at least 10 minutes before cutting into bars.

This recipe is very similar to one that I have used over the years from a cookbook and its great. I cut the sugar down to 1 cup and it is the right combo of sweet and tart. I also add a touch o...

I used 3/4 cup of brown sugar, and just over 1/4 cup of white sugar and it was great. Not mega sweet, and still let some of the tart rhubarb come through. Use your hands to mix the crust mixture...
