Can this yummy dessert be frozen, and if so, for how long?

I also need to know if this bar can be frozen. Wedding coming up and this bar is perfect!

Do you think that lemon juice would work in place of orange? No one in my family likes orange juice so we never have it in the fridge and I'd hate to buy it just for this...

My grandson wanted something from Rhubarb other then sauce so we found this recipe and made them. They are good, not too sweet or too tangy. But I can't taste the orange so I think next time we will use some zest or just use lemon. The cookie crust isn't very flavorful either so maybe some zest in there too. It is a little eggy so maybe less yokes? Also maybe a little more rhubarb. Still good tho!

Making these for the third time in two weeks; so yes, we love them. I have been halfing the recipe and using an 8x8 pan. Delicious dessert to feature rhubarb from the garden! The batch in the oven has whole wheat flour, fresh orange juice and zest, and stevia. We’ll see how it goes!
