Sweet Strawberry Dream Bars

I love rhubarb and this is my favorite way to fix it. I have to make this when I have company over or I will eat the whole thing myself.

Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Filling:
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F and line an 8×8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, sugar and salt together in the bowl of a food processor and pulse together.
  3. Add in cold, cubed butter and pulse together until mixture is coarse and crumbly.
  4. Turn dough out into lined baking dish and use your hands or a flat-bottomed object to press crust into an even layer.
  5. Place baking dish in oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Edges should just begin pulling away from sides of dish.
  6. In a large bowl, combine filling ingredients (strawberries, eggs, sugar, flour, orange juice and salt) and toss together until evenly coated.
  7. Remove crust from oven and pour strawberry rhubarb mixture evenly over the top of warm crust.
  8. Return baking dish to oven and bake for another 45-55 minutes, or until fruit is tender and cooked through.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool at least 20 minutes, then cut into squares. Enjoy!
