  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together 2 cups of flour, confectioners' sugar and butter until it forms a dough, or at least the butter is in small crumbs. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. While this bakes, whisk together the white sugar, salt, flour and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in rhubarb to coat. Spread evenly over the baked crust when it comes out of the oven.
  3. Bake for another 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until rhubarb is tender. Cool and cut into squares to serve.

These were sooooooo good. Probably one of my favorite rhubarb desserts. I did have to up my baking time by 10-15 minutes to make sure the rhubarb was set and the crust was completely done. Thank...
