Rhurbarb Bars

 Last week I pulled out my last stash of frozen rhubarb to try out a new recipe!! I don't know for sure where I got this recipe (torn from a magazine) but I'm thinking the ALL YOU magazine. It was SOOOOOOOOOOO incredible, yummy and delicious it made me sad we didn't have anymore rhubarb to make it again!!

1. Line a 9X13 pan with foil and spray with Pam
2. In a medium bowl stir together 3 cups of rhubarb, 1 cup of sugar, & 1/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, & cover & simmer for about 5 min.
3. In a small bowl add 1/2 cup of sugar, & 2 tablespoons of flour. Add to the pan mixture and stir for about 1 minute until thick. Remove from heat. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Pre-Heat oven to 375.
4. Stir together 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 1/2 cups of quick oats, 1 cup of brown sugar, & 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. Using a pastry blender cut in 1 cup of shortening until mixture is coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 cup of crumbs! You can also add 1/2 cup of walnuts or pecans....optional.
5. Press crumbs into the bottom, spread rhubarb hot mixture, then add the reserve crumbs on top. Bake for 30-35 min., until golden brown. Cool pan on wire rack. After they cool, remove bars from pan using the foil wrap to remove them from pan. Cut into desired sized bars.

I also made a batch of these yummy dinner rolls. This time I spread honey over them instead of butter like usual....just for something different. It was okay but I think we'll stick to the butter!
Hope these two ideas inspire you as all prepare to get ready for THANKSgiving!
