DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, pecans, butter, and sugar.
  • Press into a greased 13"x9"x2" baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Topping: In a large saucepan, combine brown sugar and cornstarch.Stir in rhubarb until combined. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat and cook until thickened and the rhubarb is tender. (This is where I also add a few drops of red food coloring to "pep it up" a bit) When done, remove from heat and cool. When cool, stir in the sliced strawberries.
  • Filling: In a small mixing bowl , beat cream cheese and confectioners sugar until smooth.Fold in 1 cup of whipped cream.
  • Spread the filling over the cooled crust, top with the cooled rhubarb mixture. Spread the remaining whipped cream on top of the rhubarb layer.
  • Garnish with some additional brown sugar ( I also added some extra sliced strawberries as garnish).
  • Refrigerate for 3-4 hours before serving.
