Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1 teaspoon cornstarch, combined with
  3. 2 teaspoons confectioner’s sugar or granulated white sugar
Crust
  1. 1-½ cups all-purpose flour
  2. ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  3. ½ cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and diced
Filling
  1. 4 cups rhubarb, cut crosswise into 1/8-inch thick pieces
  2. 1 cup peanuts, lightly roasted and chopped (divided)
  3. 2 large eggs
  4. 1-¼ cups granulated white sugar
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  6. ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  7. 2 tablespoons fine white cornstarch
  8. ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush a 9x10x2-inch baking pan with some of the softened butter. Line with baking paper. Brush paper with remaining softened butter and lightly dust with cornstarch-confectioners’ sugar mixture. Tap out any excess. Set pan aside.
Crust
  1. Combine together flour, light brown sugar, and butter. Pulse in a food processor until crumbly. Press onto the bottom of prepared pan. Bake in middle rack for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven. Set aside until cooled. Chill, if desired.
Filling
  1. Once crust is cooled, spread all over with rhubarb slices. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the chopped peanuts. Set aside.
  2. Beat eggs until frothy and pale. Add sugar. Continue beating until light and fluffy. Beat in orange juice.
  3. Combine together flour, cornstarch and salt. Sift over egg mixture and fold, working in 2 to 3 batches until just incorporated. Spread batter over rhubarb layer. Smoothen top and sprinkle with remaining chopped peanuts.
  4. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until set and tester inserted comes out clean. Remove pan from oven. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Score top with a knife according to preferred size of bars. Allow to cool completely. Cut into bars before serving.
Notes
  1. Serve bars in muffin paper topped with whipped cream or drizzled with your favorite hot fudge sauce.
  2. For variety, melt about 1 ounce bittersweet chocolate. Spread over crust before adding rhubarb and peanut layer.
  3. You can also omit peanuts. Replace with 1/3 cup raisins soaked in 2 tablespoons brandy. Spread raisins and brandy over rhubarb layer before covering with batter. Top with dollops of minted whipped cream before serving.
