Rhubarb and me, we've been friends for a long, long time. The very first pie I ever made by myself was rhubarb and my Nanny, my inspiration for this blog, told me that it was the "best rhubarb pie she had ever eaten". One of the first desserts I ever made Grumpy were the Rhubarb Custard Bars. I remember how much he loved those bars and I had to make them several times that summer. This Rhubarb Cheesecake kind of reminded me of those bars. Delicious!
This recipe was in an issue of allrecipes magazine and was one my son Christopher pointed out to me. I had asked him one day what I should make from the magazine and his immediate response was the Rhubarb Cheesecake! So, I made this the week of vacation when my dad and mom were here. My dad loved it so much he ate two pieces!
Because I love rhubarb so much myself, I thought I would love to have several links that gave me different recipes to have on file. So, I gathered together some recipes for fellow bloggers that you will see in the link up below this recipe.
