I read all the comments about this recipe in advance so I knew it wouldn't be what I think of as shortbread, a crunchy, buttery, cookie. This are a softer, filled bar and some people liked that aspect but some didn't.
I like to follow the recipes so I made the rhubarb "jam." I had to call around to find the rhubarb since it isn't something commonly found at the markets here. Fortunately Harris Teeter had some! The jam came out much thinner than typical jam--it was more like a puree. I'm not sure if that is how it was supposed to be or not.
