I tried three rhubarb recipes the day I made this…one cake, one pie, and this cheesecake. This cheesecake was the best of the 3 I made AND I brought all three creations to work and again this cheesecake was rated the best of the three. I had to make probably 15 copies of this recipe to give out. It was SUPER easy to make. I had one minor problem….when I baked the rhubarb mixture for 15 minutes as directed, the liquid created by the rhubarb leaked out of my springform pan and into my oven and that gooey stuff turned rock hard on the bottom of my oven. Oh well…the final result was sooooo fantastic, this little mess was well worth it and I’d do it again!!! Thanks!!!
