This recipe was originally published in May 2014. I updated the pictures and text in May 2018, recipe remains the same. I added some additional notes, based on issues a few people had.

Can you believe I’ve been blogging for 4 years now? It’s hard for me to believe. I feel like it is cliche to say that though. These rhubarb bars were the 11th recipe I ever published. Kind of scary to look back at those first posts. But these rhubarb bars were the first one to be very popular and it’s still one of the most popular rhubarb recipes on Pinterest. Btw, do you follow me on Pinterest? You should!
These rhubarb bars feature all the goodness of spring. The simplicity of the recipe allows the rhubarb to shine in all its tangy glory. To highlight the freshness of the rhubarb, the crust is a simple shortbread, made from a crumb mixture of flour, sugar and butter. The buttery sweetness of the crust perfectly complements the zing of the rhubarb and with less than an hour from start to finish, what excuse do you have for not making them?
