Nothing tastes like spring more than rhubarb and strawberry. The crust and crumb topping on these bars are so tasty, nobody will know they’re eating gluten-free. —Lisa Wilson, Virginia, Minnesota

"I haven't made this yet but would like to know if I need to add xanthan gum to my all purpose gluten free flour (which doesn't contain xanthan gum)."

I would like to try this recipe but I do not have gluten-free flour. Are there alternatives I can use or can I use all purpose flour?
As long as you're not trying to eat gluten-free, I see no reason you can't use all-purpose flour."
