Happy Mother's Day to all of my family and friends! And for all of the fun that we have celebrating our mothers, grandmothers, mothers-in-law, moms-to-be, and those daughters who are mothers to the best gift of them all - our grandchildren, it can be such a melancholy day remembering moms that are no longer with us, or a heartbreaking day for those that have suffered the loss of a child, miscarriage, or fertility problems. I hope that your day is filled with happy memories and peaceful celebration!
We're going to be sharing and enjoying an old-fashioned batch of Rhubarb Custard Bars - so pink and delicious! Sweet rhubarb and custard filling on top of a shortbread cookie crust, and topped with a cloud of cream cheese and sweet whipped cream...what's not to love?
And when Skipper says..."They sure are pink....", I just smile and agree with him. Now, the pink is certainly optional, but aren't these just so darn pretty?
Rhubarb Pie is an absolute family favorite, and I make lots of them each spring, but this sweet little recipe has the tart and sweet custardy pie filling that we all love. The golden shortbread crust looks like a pie crust, but it really gives these bars a different structure and taste than you have with a pie. And the fluffy and sweet cream cheese and whipped cream frosting? It stays so stabilized and pretty, and keeps its sweet vanilla swirls and twirls better than just a whipped topping.
And they taste even better than they look!
Sweet and wonderful Rhubarb Custard Bars...they just make me happy!
Hope that you can enjoy these with someone you love!
