Rhubarb Dessert

A teaching colleague and fellow gardener shared this recipe. It's perfect for June, when the rhubarb plants are thriving!

Mrs. Enviro-Teacher's Rhubarb Dessert

Crust:
1 c. butter, softened
2 c. flour
2 T. sugar
Mix together and press into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, or lightly browned.

Mix:
5 c. diced rhubarb
3 egg yolks, beaten
3 T. flour
2 c. sugar
1/8 t. salt
½ c. cream

Pour over baked crust. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven.

Meringue:
Beat 3 egg whites. Add 1/3 c. sugar, a little at a time, and then ½ t. vanilla. Beat until it peaks. (Don’t make meringue until you have taken dessert out of the oven.)
Swirl meringue over top of baked dessert. Return to oven and bake 10 minutes, or until lightly golden.

This sweet and tart treat was a major hit in the teachers' lounge. I highly recommend it!

And yes, as the badge indicates, I've signed up for NaBloPoMo for the month of June. Why not? School's out, and the mom/garden/teacher blogger will play!

This sounds good. I just signed up for a CSA. Now I need to find some good turnip and beet recipes. I hear that at some point I'll get a big bag of turnips and/or beets.
