Reviews forStrawberry-Rhubarb Cream Dessert
"How could you make the crust without nuts? Any suggestions? Thanks"
"This was a very nice change from my usual strawberry-rhubarb crisps and pies. I used twice the amount of strawberries (thankful for the Florida crop that's coming into our markets right now) because I had less of my frozen (thawed) rhubarb than the recipe calls for. I also made the crust using half walnuts, half pecans. The next time I make this dessert, I just might double the cream cheese layer to make it more cheesecake-like. Thank you for a wonderful recipe. It is truly delicious."
