"I replaced the fresh raspberries that were originally called for with the frozen variety so that I could decrease the sugar in the fruit mixture," explains the Cleveland, Ohio baker. "The squares are perfect any time of year."

Ingredients

  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen sweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 4 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • CRUST:
  • 1-1/3 cups quick-cooking oats

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

Drain raspberries, reserving juice. Add enough water to reserved juice to measure 1-1/2 cups; set berries aside. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in raspberry juice mixture until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the berries and rhubarb; set aside.
In a bowl, combine the crust ingredients until blended. Set aside 1/4 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set.
