These were rather tasty. Only complaint was that the crust was too hard to eat. I think because of how many gingersnap cookies that were used. Next time I will use more graham crackers and less gingersnaps. And the strawberries are a nice touch even though they were not mentioned in the recipe.

I made this with the intention of sharing it with friends, but my husband wouldn’t let me share! A delicious combination of two of my favorite things–cheesecake and rhubarb. I skipped the ginger in the sauce, but I will add gingersnaps to my graham cracker crusts from now on–yum! I used the reduced fat cream cheese so my bars were a little softer, but still delicious. And this is about as pretty as rhubarb desserts get without adding strawberries. My only complaint was that I, too, found myself in a time crunch when I realized how long this needed to chill/cool. Perhaps revising the cooking time in the recipe would help?

Brought this to a gourmet dinner party that I was nervous about attending because of the caliber of cooks there. It was a hit, I had requests to bring it every time I came over. It’s light and fruity with an interesting tang.
When I made the bars I had some trouble with the crust being tough to cut through and made the bars a little messy looking. Maybe I pre – cooked the crust too long. Also, when I picked the this recipe, I choose it because the prep time was only an hour and I was making it for a dinner party that night. My mistake was not reading until the end until I was committed to the dish. The 5 hour cooling time really put me in a crunch.
I re-made this again in a 9 in spring form pan, using the same amount of filling and it made a wonderful thin cheese cake that you could see the swirling of rhubarb when you presented it… The sauce on top was perfect and it was a hit!

These were wonderful – everybody loved them! The ginger is deliciously unexpected and so complimentary to the rhubarb!

the ginger is an amazing addition to the rhubarb. We served it with Haagen Daz ginger 5 ice cream

I think the times indicated at the top are very misleading. Also, tangentially, I think the difficulty level should be higher than “easy”.

Ahhh ok! I thought maybe you’d left something out or forgot an ingredient! lol (I do that) I’m going to try making this on the weekend for our anniversary dinner. My hubby is a fool for rhubarb!

Jill, good question. The answer is a lazy one. I needed a garnish for the top, but didn’t have any rhubarb left. Typically, I garnish with an ingredient that is in the dish, but this happened to be an exception.
