Heavenly Rhubarb Bars Recipe

Heavenly Rhubarb Bars Recipe
Even though Rhubarb isn’t the most popular vegetable (yes, it’s a vegetable, not a fruit), its tart flavor is an advantage when used in not-too-sweet desserts, such as Heavenly Rhubarb Bars. These bars consist of a buttery shortbread crust, topped with a luscious custard full of tart rhubarb. They are quite easy to put together, and they are so good that definite dyed-in-the-wool rhubarb haters may take another look and find that they actually like it.
These bars keep up to a week, covered, at room temperature, however, they may not last that long when family members discover they are available.
