Rhubarb Sour Cream Bars


Rhubarb is one of the first flavours of spring and these delicious bars have just the right amount of sweet and tang.


  • 2 cups fresh or frozen sliced rhubarb
  • 1 cup brown sugar, divided
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 ¼ cups gingersnap cookie crumbs
  • ¼ cup Gay Lea Spreadables Butter, Cinnamon & Brown Sugar, melted
  • 1 ½ cups Gay Lea Gold 18% Sour Cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Combine rhubarb, 1/2 cup (125 mL) brown sugar and the water in a heavy saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring often, for 10 to 12 minutes or until rhubarb is soft and thickened to an applesauce consistency. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).
  3. Toss cookie crumbs with melted Spreadables butter until well combined. Press into bottom of a parchment paper-lined, 9-inch (23 cm) baking dish.
  4. Whisk sour cream with remaining sugar and flour until well combined; whisk in eggs and vanilla just until smooth. Pour over prepared crust. Dollop rhubarb mixture over top and swirl with a knife until evenly marbled.
  5. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes or until centre is just slightly jiggly. Cool to room temperature, then chill thoroughly before slicing.
