"Many fruits & berries are hugely popular across the Scandinavian countries, but none show more prolific growth or uses than the rhubarb which finds its way into homemade jam, baked goods & a wide variety of other desserts. Found @ BHGdotcom, this will likely be my last rhubarb recipe for the season as my rhubarb bounty is due to start arriving this evening. My rhubarb benefactor even took her kindness a step further this yr by cleaning & slicing it for me, so it will be ready to use or be frozen while I use it in batches. A recipe for GINGER ICING was also a part of this recipe, but Siggi & I usually view icing as overkill & would rather have a dessert like this served as mentioned below in the SERVING SUGGESTIONS. Time does not include the 2 hr cool time. ENJOY!"

NOTE RE PIC: Made this recipe today (6/18/16) & it was a super-easy fix. The fresh strawberry halves were just added to provide a color element. It was made to have at a later date, will be frozen until then & I will add the "bars cut shot" at that time.

I already wrote one review, but it seemed to escape into cyberspace. Sorry if it turns up twice. Made this as dessert for an Indian feast. Just the right amount of sweetness. The base was wonderfully crunchy. Thanks for a great recipe.
