Creamy Rhubarb Cheesecake Dessert

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Lainey39

This is another way I like to use the rhubarb when it's in season. The rhubarb gives it a tangy flavor. Feel free to add some strawberries to the rhubarb if you would like. Prep time does not include chilling time.

I found that the crust and cheesecake were delicious, and the recipe was easy to make, however the sour cream topping was a bit odd. Next time I make this, I'm waiting till the cake cools, and topping it with either cool whip or sweetened whipped cream instead of the sour cream layer.
