Rhubarb Custard Bars

Here is another real easy rhubarb dessert recipe from Marlene and Jeanette.  
This recipe starts in your electric mixer.  
Mix the crust ingredients so they look like this and reserve a half cup for the topping.
Press the crumbly goodness into the bottom of an 8" X 8" pan.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until it's golden brown.
While the crust is baking, whip the custard ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
When the crust comes out of the oven, sprinkle the rhubarb on top.

Add the custard mixture.
Sprinkle the reserved crumbly topping.
Bake for about 45 minutes.
Enjoy alone or with your favorite topping and a cup of coffee.
