Rhubarb Dream

This is so easy and good that for years I keep going back to it, even though I have tried many rhubarb recipes over the years.



  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 5 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups or more rhubarb cut into 1/2 inch pieces.


Blend first 3 ingredients together like you would for a pie crust and then press into a 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes.

Mix 2 well beaten eggs with the 1 cup sugar, the 1/4 cup flour and the pinch of salt. Add rhubarb and mix. Pour over baked crust and return it to oven to bake again for 35 minutes.

Note: Original recipe called for 1-1/2 cups sugar but I cut it down because I thought it was too sweet. If you like, you could cut it down to 1-1/4 cups. I just like the tartness of the rhubarb.

Servings: 6
Time:10 to 15 Minutes Preparation Time
50 Minutes Cooking Time

Your directions say to "Mix and pour over crust and bake again for 35 minutes." Was there a first time baking? Was the crust supposed to be baked first? Was the reason why your recipe stated "bake again"?

I would like to bake this but I am a little confused right now on the directons. Thanks,

In the first paragraph of directions, it said to bake it at 350 for 15 minutes. You must have overlooked that.
