Filling

1 cup
sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
1/3 cup
water
1 tablespoon
sugar
1 (12-ounce) jar (1 cup)
strawberry preserves
2 tablespoons
cornstarch

Crust

1 1/2 cups
quick-cooking oats or old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup
all-purpose flour
3/4 cup
firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon
baking soda
3/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter

Drizzle

3/4 cup
powdered sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine rhubarb, water and sugar in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 1-2 minutes until mixture comes to a boil. Cover; cook over low heat 5 minutes or until rhubarb is very soft.
  3. Stir preserves and cornstarch into rhubarb mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, 3-5 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat.
  4. Combine oats, flour, brown sugar and baking soda in bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 3/4 cup crumb mixture.
  5. Press remaining crumb mixture evenly on bottom of ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake 19-24 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  6. Spread rhubarb mixture to within 1/4 inch of edge of hot, partially baked crust. Crumble reserved crumb mixture over filling. Continue baking 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
  7. Stir together powdered sugar and enough orange juice in bowl for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled bars. Cut into bars.
