Rhubarb Bars
taken from the 1993 Alta United Methodist Church Cookbook.
recipe submitted by Gleva Axelson – who was the church (Rob’s dad’s) secretary.

3 c. rhubarb, chopped (1/2 inch pieces)
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
3 TBS. cornstarch
1/4 c. cold water
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. kosher salt (that’s a Rob addition)
1 c. oleo (Rob used 2 sticks of butter)
1/2 c. nutmeats (Rob skipped this part)

Preheat the oven to 350. Dissolve cornstarch in the cold water. Combine cornstarch water, rhubarb, granulated sugar and vanilla in a large saucepan or dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let it cook for a couple minutes, the mixture will be a little pink in color and slightly thicker. Remove from heat. Mix oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, soda, salt, oleo, and nutmeats like a crust (Rob used a pastry blender – until it was in a small pea-sized bits – then squeezed it together with his hands) Put 3/4 of crust mixture in a 9×13 pan. Pat the crust into place (Rob uses the back of a metal measuring cup). Pour the rhubarb filling over the crust. Top with remaining crust mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.
