These Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Bars are basically Strawberry Rhubarb Pie in handheld form. The combination of flavors, combined with a moist cake may make these your new go-to summer sweet.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter - softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2.5 cups Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Filling - recipe below
Confectioners' Sugar Glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  • Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Then, line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper. Spray with baking spray and set aside.
  • With a stand (or handheld) mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then, beat in the eggs one at a time along with the vanilla extract.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just combined.
  • Add a little over half of the cake batter to the parchment-lined baking pan. Use an offset spatula to spread out an even layer. Top with the strawberry rhubarb pie filling and spread out into an even layer.
  • Finally, add dollops (about 1 tablespoon) of the remaining cake batter over the strawberry rhubarb pie filling. Gently spread into an even layer using your offset spatula. (It's okay if some of the pie filling shows through.)
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the top starts to become golden brown. Avoid over baking. (You can test the center of a cake with a toothpick. It should come out clean.) Allow to cool, then slice into rectangles or squares.
  • For a final finishing touch, drizzle with a confectioners' sugar glaze. To make the glaze, whisk together the sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and salt. (Add the milk a little at a time to achieve the desired consistency.)
