Rhubarb Custard Bars



Because it's Rhubarb season and my computer is down, I'm reposting this delicious recipe for Rhubarb Custard Bars.
They are incredibly delicious and competition for my other favorite rhubarb recipe Rhubarb Crunch.

Rhubarb Custard Bars
Crus2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup butter, cold
In a bowl combine flour and sugar, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into a 9x13" pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Let cool.

Filling:
2 cups sugar
7 Tbsp flour
1 cup whipping cream
3 eggs, beaten
5 cups rhubarb, diced
1/4 tsp salt
Combine sugar, flour and salt. Whisk in cream and eggs. Stir in rhubarb. Pour over baked crust. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until custard is set.  Cool.

Topping:
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese,
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup whipping cream, (whipped) 
Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Spread over top. Cover and chill. Cut into bars.
