Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in the milk and egg yolk. Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 13-in. x 9-in. x rectangle. Place one rectangle in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cornflakes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine rhubarb and 1-1/2 cups sugar. Stir in pie filling and vanilla; spread over cornflakes. Top with the remaining pastry. Cut slits in the top.
  3. In a small bowl, lightly beat egg white; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients; drizzle over bars. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 12-16 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

MY REVIEW

This is a super dessert. Serve it warm with ice cream mmm... You can also use canned apple pie filling.

MY REVIEW

This is absolutely divine. Its delicate crust melts in your mouth and the tangy/sweet flavor of the fruit is perfect to the palate.

MY REVIEW

I have made this many times and simply love it! The bottom crust just lays in the bottom of the pan.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2008

Question, does the bottom crust just lay in the pan or do you press it down or up the sides-like a pie. I am going to make this and wanted to be sure I do it right.
