Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Spray a 13x9-inch baking pan with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper; set aside.
step 2
Start by preparing the crust. In a medium bowl, whisk together the All-Purpose Flour (2 cups) and Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup).
step 3
Cut Butter (1 cup) into small pieces and immediately add to the bowl; using a pastry blender, a couple of forks, or your food processor, cut or pulse together until it resembles coarse crumbs.
step 4
Press evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 12 minutes.
step 5
Remove from the oven and let cool.
step 6
While the crust cools, prepare the filling. In a large bowl, whisk together the Granulated Sugar (2 cups), Corn Starch (1/4 cup), and Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp).
step 7
In a small bowl, whisk Farmhouse Eggs® Large Brown Eggs (3).
step 8
Pour eggs, Heavy Cream (1 cup), Vanilla Extract (1 tsp), and Pink Food Coloring (2 drops) into the sugar mixture and whisk until blended.
step 9
Add Rhubarb (5 1/2 cups) and fold together with a spatula.
step 10
Gently pour filling on top of baked cookie crust – direct filling onto the top of a spatula or back of a large spoon to prevent it from breaking up your baked cookie crust. It will level itself out.
step 11
Return to the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the custard is set.
step 12
Remove from the oven and cool on a baking rack for an hour.
step 13
Cover pan with foil and place in refrigerator and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
step 14
Prepare the topping by beating Cream Cheese (1 cup), Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup), and Pure Vanilla Extract (1 tsp) until smooth.
step 15
Fold in Whipped Topping (3 3/4 cups).
step 16
Spread evenly over top of custard mixture. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
step 17
Cut into bars and garnish with fresh raspberries or strawberries if you desire.
