2 cups fresh cut-up rhubarb
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup butter, room temp
1/3 cup powdered sugar
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
tsp salt

Wash and prepare rhubarb, cut into in pieces.
Blend flour and butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in the powdered sugar.
Press into a buttered 9 inch square cake pan, or a 10 by 7 by 1/12 in baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min. or until golden. While crust is baking, beat eggs. Add sugar very gradually and beat until very light and fluffy, about 5 min. on highest speed of electric mixer. At low speed, add flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Fold in rhubarb with spatula. Pour mixture over baked crust, spreading it evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 min. or until pale golden and top feels dry. Serve cooled, with whipping cream, & strawberries when in season.
