Rhubarb Custard Bars Recipe

Rhubarb Custard Bars Recipe

Once I tried these rich gooey bars, I just had to have the recipe so I could make them for my family and friends. The shortbread-like crust and rhubarb and custard layers inspire people to find rhubarb they can use to fix a batch for themselves. —Shari Roach, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 50 min. YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 7 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 5 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed and drained
  • TOPPING:
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar; cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, for filling, combine sugar and flour in a bowl. Whisk in cream and eggs. Stir in the rhubarb. Pour over crust. Bake at 350° until custard is set, 40-45 minutes. Cool.
  • 3. For topping, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth; fold in whipped cream. Spread over top. Cover and chill. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 3 dozen.

Recipe Note


Test Kitchen Tips

  • Heavy whipping cream gives custard fillings a luscious, decadent texture, but half-and-half cream or whole milk can be substituted with nice results.
  • This is a potluck hero: It makes a mountain of bars. If you're cooking for a smaller crew, however, just halve the recipe and use a 9- or 8-inch-square baking dish.
  • If you prefer your bars on the tart side, bump up the rhubarb to 6 or 6-1/2 cups or reduce the sugar in the filling to 1-1/2 cups.
  • Go full garden party for your friends and family by adding the seeds of one vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon of rosewater to the filling. Both flavors pair beautifully

  • with rhubarb and take these already fab bars to another level.

    "Amazing recipe! My husband and I visit this small Amish/Mennonite restaurant and I always get their Rhubarb Custard pie. This reminds me of that pie, but so much easier to make. To cut back on calories, I omitted the frosting and just drizzled a very thin vanilla frosting over the top and I was happy with the result. This will be my go to recipe from now on, replacing the rhubarb custard pie I usually make. Thanks for sharing this."

I think frozen would have added too much moisture. There is a lot of sugar but it was worth it. Next time I'll use whipped cream and lose the extra 1/2 cup of sugar. Also, 36 bars from a 13x9 baking dish makes them more like cubes. If you are counting carbs 1 "bar" is more like 70 carbs."

The 2nd time, I wanted more custardy filling, so added 1/4 cup milk., too. We had a house-full of people, so it makes enough. I will be bringing this to pot-lucks, for sure. It certainly was NOT bland. We used freshly picked rhubarb. We all loved the shortbread crust. I feel this was an easy recipe and quick, but then, I had my rhubarb already cut and didn't bake the crust before adding the filling. It tastes more custardy when eaten warm. It sets up a bit when chilled. It would be yummy even without the topping, I am sure. A big hit, here!"

    "Fabulous! My family asks for this. Rhubarb is the key ingredient here. I mix the sugar & flour & rhubarb (more like 6 cups chopped VERY FINE) and let it set while I prepare the other parts. When making the cookie bottom I don't press it down real tight. For sure, don't overbake the bottom. It's better to eat it like fall apart cake than to have it overcooked & dry. Ask me how I know. Smile. Also, bake it in glass, not metal. I love Jaslyn's suggestions & I plan to try them but this recipe is great as is. It tastes great warm out of the oven AND cold the next day. Oh, and it makes a lot. It could easily be halved. And one more thing, I have been making these bars since the recipe was first published in the magazines in 1988 I just never added a rating.

    "This is a very yummy way to use up some rhubarb. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg into the custard part of the bars and cut the sugar just a tad. I also used a whole brick of cream cheese and more like 1.5 cups of heavy cream for the whipped cream part of the topping, and I think next time I will just double the topping part altogether ~ it is SO GOOD! All in all, this recipe is a definite keeper. Next time I will also up the sugar in the crust just a smidge, as that part still needs "something more"."

    "Very good! I followed the recipe as written. The crust could have baked about 3-4 minutes longer but that may have been my oven. I took this to a potluck without having made the recipe before; that's always a gamble! I received numerous compliments and a few requests for the recipe. Tell-tale vote was in the fact that I took home an empty pan! The bars were sweet but the tartness of the rhubarb balances it out and dessert was light tasting. I also appreciated that real whipped cream and not artificial topping was used. It gave the bars a richer taste than the artificial plastic tasting topping would."

    "My first rhubarb dessert for this season, the crust and the filling were wonderful! The topping was good but there was way too much of it. I only put half of it on and it was still over powering. One package of cream cheese would have been plenty. Family suggested we just use cool whip next time so we could taste the rhubarb. I will make again. Thanks for the recipe."

    "I made this recipe after reading all the great reviews. I was very disappointed in these bars All the butter and whipping cream overpowered the rhubarb. There is way too much crust for this recipe, half the amount would be much better. Also, since these bars have to be stored in the fridge, the chilled crust ended up being hard. Would not make these again. I'll save my rhubarb for recipes where the rhubarb can really shine."

It never disappoints, even the finickiest rhubarb eaters LOVE it...I should say that I still have the original recipe from the 1998 TOH magazine! That's a long time to make over and over...try it, you won't be dissapointed."

    "OUTSTANDING. I used frozen rhubarb that I had thoroughly squeezed out. It came out so great that I don't think I'd want to take a chance using "raw" rhubarb...would it set as well? Would it release too much liquid?

    I'm already thinking of other things to sub in...can you imagine this with plump, rum-soaked raisins? Oh, my goodness.
    I wouldn't change anything else about this recipe. It's simply perfect. And it comes together very easily."
