Spiced Rhubarb Squares

Spiced Rhubarb Squares

Perfect for Christmas baking!

Last night I shared the recipe for spiced rhubarb jelly (the best and possibly only reason I have found to grow rhubarb in your garden.) You can get the recipe here – https://moneyortime.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/spiced-rhubarb-jelly/

I mentioned that I was making spiced rhubarb squares at the time of posting the jelly recipe. Well, they turned out amazing. Perfect to add to that Christmas Baking collection!

  1. 1 1/2 cups flour
  2. 3/4 cups white sugar
  3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/2 tsp salt
  5. 1 tsp cinnamon
  6. 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  7. 1 egg
  8. 1/2 pint of spiced rhubarb jelly

Preheat over to 375 degrees and lightly grease a 9″x9″ pan.

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt,cinnamon and egg. Add butter and mix until it comes together. Spread 2/3 of the mixture on the bottom to create a crust using your hands. Spread the jelly on the crust and crumble the remaining 1/3 of the mixture on top of the jelly. Sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the middle has set.

I look forward to making many batches of these for my holiday baking this year!!

    1. They are VERY delicious and simple. The work is in the jelly I guess, but you could use any jelly. The spiced rhubarb just gives it a real Christmas feel, like mince meat or Christmas pudding 🙂
