Rhubarb Bars

If you love sweet, rich desserts, this is the recipe for your.  Thank you Marlene for sharing Jeanette's recipe for rhubarb bars.
Chop your rhubarb into small pieces.  This is what 5 cups looks like.
When you mix your softened butter and flour, it will look like this.
I put little mounds around the pan so it's easier to press it into all areas of the pan.  It's a pretty soft dough so it presses pretty easily.
I like to press a little dough up the sides of the pan, just because.
The white ingredients for the filling.
When they are all mixed together, fold in the rhubarb
After 10 minutes in the oven, your flakey crust will be ready to be filled.
Then back in the oven it will go for 40-45 minutes.
When it's baked it looks like this.
Let it cool completely before frosting the bars.
Mix the frosting with the electric mixer but fold in the whipped cream.
