  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Chill a metal bowl in refrigerator.
  2. Mix flour, pecans, butter, and white sugar in a bowl and press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake the crust in the preheated oven until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes; cool in pan on wire rack.
  4. Mix 1 cup brown sugar, corn syrup, and cornstarch in a saucepan; stir in rhubarb. Bring the rhubarb mixture to a boil; reduce heat and cook, stirring often, until thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Let the filling cool and stir in strawberries.
  5. Beat cream cheese with confectioners' sugar in a bowl until smooth.
  6. Pour heavy cream into chilled metal bowl and whip with an electric mixer until fluffy and the cream holds soft peaks, about 3 minutes. Fold 1 cup of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture; reserve remaining whipped cream.
  7. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cooled crust and top with the rhubarb mixture; spoon the remaining whipped cream over rhubarb layer. Refrigerate until set and thoroughly chilled, 3 to 4 hours; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar.

Excellent recipe. I probably added an extra cup of strawberries and only used 1/2 butter for the crust to make sure it wouldn't be greasy. It turned out lovely. Thanks so much.

This recipe is excellent! I have made it twice so far. The first time it was a huge hit, the second trial is sitting in my fridge now cooling off. This second one I only had whole wheat flour...

Quite nce, but a lot of effort needed. Great for a ladies tea, but think I would pefer with differen bottom crust...

thanks Jess, this is a fabulous dessert. not too sweet and a little tart. i would definitely make this over and over.

These are so good!!!! I cheated and used cool whip instead of making my own whipped cream, but they were exactly what I was wanting. Thanks!

i made the shortbread crust without pecans due to family members with nut allergies. The recipe makes enough shortbread crust for a 9x13 and an 8x8 in my opinion. People in my family love rhubar...

I don't know what I did but my bars turned out really runny in the middle. I was disappointed! It was very time consuming and many steps!

I've been looking for some different recipes for Rhubarb and this recipes is excellent. Didn't change a thing. I differently will be making this one again. Thanks karenkeck

This was very good and I will be making it again. I halved the recipe and made it in a smaller pan. I used one small carton of extra creamy whipped topping in place of whipping the cream myself....
