  1. In a bowl, combine flour and confectioners' sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until brown around the edges.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Add eggs; mix well. Fold in the rhubarb. Pour over crust. For topping, combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes or until rhubarb is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
