Random Photos

I've been trying to organize and back up the photos I have on my computer and thought I'd share a few.  Actually I think I'll do this from time to time.

Fresh berries I bought last week...can't wait to pick some locally!!

Rhubarb Squares

I had a load of rhubarb that I needed to cook or freeze, so I decided to make some Rhubarb Squares.  Here's the recipe I used:

Rhubarb Squares


1 cup all-purpose flour 

1/3 cup confectioners' sugar 

1/3 cup butter or margarine

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
In a bowl, combine the flour and confectioners; sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of a greased 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes.   
For filling, combine the first four ingredients in a bowl. Stir in rhubarb; pour over warm crust. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm if desired. Store in the refrigerator.  
This how they looked going in to the oven
 Here's how mine looked.....

This is what you can expect when they come out of the oven

They are very pretty squares, if I do say so myself.
