while I'm getting my act together to do the profile of 'artists named Susan'
I thought I'd share one of my favorite recipes. this one is from a friend, who got it from one of the ladies I taught with years ago. When I was a new teacher in 1975, the lady who had this recipe 'first' was ready to retire. These are tremendous, so if you make them to share, be sure to have a copy of the recipe to share also.
Lou's Rhubarb Bars
in a saucepan
1/4 c water
2 1/2T cornstarch
3 c chopped rhubarb
1 c sugar
a dash of cinnamon
a dash of salt
1 t vanilla
cook until 'sauced'
mix this and put 3/4 of it in the bottom of a 9x14 pan
1 1/2 c oatmeal I use old fashioned
1 2/3 c flour
1 t soda
1 c brown sugar
1 c shortening (I use margarine)
1/2 c chopped nuts
spread the rhubarb sauce on the crust
and sprinkle the remaining crust on top
bake 350 about 35 minutes
mine is in the oven now. We got back to Michigan with rhubarb still growing well in the back yard.
