Rhubarb Custard Squares Recipe


Rhubarb is one of those vegetables (yes, itís a vegetable and not a fruit), that most people either love or hate Ė there seems to be no in-between. Itís a common ingredient in spring desserts, and is often paired with another springtime fruit, strawberries. For those who like their rhubarb served alone, Rhubarb Custard Squares are a luscious combination of tart rhubarb with a crumbly crust and a rich custard filling that could even cause a few of those rhubarb haters to change their minds. This dessert goes together quickly, and the rhubarb doesnít need to be pre-cooked; itís just sprinkled raw over the crust. Unfortunately, the rhubarb season is short in most areas, so there isnít much time to enjoy it in desserts calling for fresh rhubarb. This is one to make first, and youíll find yourself making it often until the fresh rhubarb is gone.

Although itís ideal to serve these squares warm, they are equally good served at room temperature or chilled. Leftovers should be refrigerated.

8 Servings

Crust:
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup butter

Filling:
2 cups sliced rhubarb
1/2 cup brown sugar

2 egg yolks
1 egg
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
Nutmeg
  1. Preheat the oven to 400į.
  2. Spray a shallow 9 x 7 x 2" or 8 x 8 x 2" glass casserole dish with non-stick spray; set aside.
  3. Crust: place flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in food processor and pulse to mix; add the butter and pulse until the mixture is crumbly. Alternately, place the ingredients except butter in a mixing bowl; cut the butter into pieces and cut it in with a pastry blender.
  4. Pat the mixture evenly over the bottom of the baking dish (it will be crumbly and will not hold together Ė this is as it should be).
  5. Scatter the rhubarb slices evenly over the crust; sprinkle the brown sugar over the rhubarb.
  6. Whizz (blender or food processor) or whisk the egg yolks, whole egg, and whipping cream; pour over the rhubarb.
  7. Grate a little nutmeg over the top.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center is set.
  9. Remove from the oven and let sit 15 minutes.
