I was looking for something different but quick to put together. I made this for my Father for Father's Day because he gave me some rhubarb plants last year which really produced well this year. Well, I think he really liked it because he had 2 slices! When I make it next time, I'll use reduce fat sour cream and perhaps at least one lower fat block of cream cheese. I was so full I couldn't move from one slice, it was really good. It's a nice shortbread crust which is worth making from scratch and so quick to make in the food processor. I lined the inside of my spingform pan with foil prior to filling to ensure the butter didn't drip out all over while baking and make the house smell "burnt". If you like a sweet and tart contrast (which doesn't take on that full rhubarb flavor), I think you'll enjoy this a lot. Thanks for sharing!
Made this today in a store bought graham cracker crust.
It is my new favorite cheesecake and also my new favorite rhubarb dessert.
My family really liked it as well.
Phenomonel cheesecake! It has a light, sweet/tart taste that is quite suprising (considering how tart rhubarb can be. Don't leave out the sour cream topping; it is a must!! I had put down 2 large freezer bags last summer; I just finished the last of it today!! Love the recipe for the fact that it is fast and easy to make...doesn't cost $25 just for the cream cheese...I can cut the recipe in half and serve it to 6 people... and, my family demands that I made it!! This is one recipe that I would highly recommend!! Kudos on a great posting!!
Followed the recipe exactly. Best cheesecake ever! Love the sour cream/sugar topping too. Thanks for sharing, I already passed this recipe along.
A friend made this cheesecake using a ready-made pie crust instead of the flour/sugar mixture (and omitting the need for a springform pan). It was pure heaven. The creamy cheesecake was offset by the tartness of the rhubarb and the sweetness of the sour cream/sugar topping. We devoured it.
It was awesome!!! The sour cream topping is not needed, but altogether it was the most excellent rhubarb cheesecake I have ever had!!!
