2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cold butter


2 cups granulated sugar
7 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 cup whipping cream, not whipped
3 eggs, beaten
5 cups chopped fresh or *frozen rhubarb


2 pkgs. (3 ounces, each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup whipping cream, whipped



In a bowl, combine the flour and the sugar, and cut in the butter using a pastry blender, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Press the mixture into the bottom of a greased, 9' x 13" baking dish.

Bake at 350° F for 10 minutes.


In a bowl, combine the sugar and flour, and whisk in the cream and the beaten eggs, until well combined.

Stir in the rhubarb, and pour over the base in the baking dish.

Bake at 350° F for 40 - 45 minutes or until custard is set, and then allow to cool.


In a bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.

Fold in the whip cream.

Spread the topping over the cooled filling in the baking dish.

Cover, and chill in the refrigerator.

Makes 36 (small) bars.
