Rhubarb Squares (or Apple Squares)

The recreation therapist made these with our patients at the hospital. They were very popular!

2-1/4 cups flour
1/4 c white sugar
1 cup salted butter

5 cups chopped rhubarb*
3 eggs*
3 tablespoons flour*
1 cup brown sugar*

Mix 2-1/4 cups of flour with softened butter and white sugar. Press mixture into the bottom of a 11x15 pan.

Fruit topping:

Beat eggs until frothy, then add sugar, flour and rhubarb and mix well. Pour fruit over the base.

Bake in preheated oven at 375 F degrees for 45 minutes.

*Variation: Apple Squares

Substitute 6 cups of chopped apples for rhubarb and decrease eggs to one. Decrease brown sugar to 3/4 cup and flour to 1 tbsp for fruit mixture.

If you use a 9x13 pan, put 3/4 of the crumb mixture in the bottom and sprinkle the remaining amount on top of the fruit.
