Strawberry-Rhubarb Cream Dessert Recipe

A neighbor shared this recipe with me, and I created my own variation using garden-fresh rhubarb and strawberries. The shortbread crust and creamy sweet-tart layers went over big at a family party…not a crumb was left! &dmash;Sara Zignego, Hartford, Wisconsin

I feel the topping really takes away from the rhubarb flavor. I prefer having the rhubarb as the strongest.
