I made this recipe many times and it is always well received. The key is to brown the butter well, but don't burn it. It adds a wonderful flavor to the crust. I've past this recipe on to many friends and family members.

Delicious! I wasn't sure how I'd like it since rhubarb isn't my favorite, but my mom had some leftover in the fridge. It was DELICIOUS! My family loved it! Yum Yum! Crispy but soft, and just the right amount of sugar and rhubarb. MMMmmm Good!

Absolutely you can adjust the amount of rhubarb. Quite likely the flavor of the rhubarb could be different depending on the variety of rhubarb and other factors.

Would love to have a stronger rhubarb taste. Could the amount be adjusted w/o messing the recipe up?

I've made this several times now. But I decided to add some fresh strawberries. It came out so delicious. Now that's the only way I make it.

My husband loved it which was test #1. The consistency of the cookie crust and the filling reminded me of my favorite lemon bar recipe. Definitely would recommend serving warm if possible. Was delicious with vanilla ice cream.

easy to make ,i use fresh rhubarb from my own patch..very moist,and will serve with whipped cream...great flavor!

I reduced all the sugar ingredients in the crust, filling, and topping by almost half and it was still great.

The tartness of the rhubarb marries well with the shortbread crust. Simply Delicious~ simple to prepare and very delicious!

From the Test Kitchens... Absolutely this cookie cake can be made ahead of time. I would cover it and refrigerate it if you plan to not serve it the same day. I would then warm it slightly before serving it since it is a mouthwatering dessert when warm. Enjoy your rhubarb this season!

Is this something you could make a few days early? Aside from the whipped cream.

I have to share this recipe with everyone who these rhubarb recipe. It's a keeper!

I made this dessert for a dinner party in Newfoundland & all of the guests loved it. Am preparing it again tomorrow for another gathering. Great with vanilla ice cream or cool whip.

Soooooo good! That bottom shortbread just made this cake. I will make this again as well as the shortbread recipe by itself. Never had browned butter shortbread but it is scrumptious.

Rating

This was so good. The brown sugar and the nutmeg really work well with the rhubarb. It had the right amount of tart and sweet taste for us. We ate it plain all though I think it would take great with ice cream on top.

Rating

So very easy to make and very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly and I wouldn't change a thing.

Rating

excellent served with ice cream.

Rating

I used a little more rhubarb than tha recipe called for. very good

Cut sugar to 1/4 C on base and to 1/2 C on filling cut the overly sweet taste. Rhubarb is supposed to have a "tang" - full sugar in recipe was way too sweet for us. My office co-workers agreed.
