. . . Rhubarb Cheesecake Pie . . .

I was taking a look at A Farmgirl's Dabbles and ran across this recipe and knew it was one I had to make!  How can you go wrong with pie and cheesecake in one recipe?  I don't think you can.  This recipe is a real winner and I highly recommend giving it a try.  It is a little bit of work since there are several layers to prepare and bake but well worth the time.

I love the combo of the shortbread crust and the cheesecake layer mixed with the sweet and tart taste of the rhubarb.  This is a crowd pleaser for sure!

You will need:
 for the crust:
1-1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 c. unsalted butter, at room temperature

for the rhubarb layer:
2 c. chopped rhubarb
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. all-purpose flour

for the cream cheese layer:
12 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

for the sour cream layer:
1/2 c. sour cream
1 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

 • Blend butter, sugar, flour and salt together for the crust.  I used my fingers but you can use a pastry blender
• The dough should be very well combined and crumbly in texture
• Press dough into a 9 inch pie plate--cover the bottom and sides
• Bake as directed in the recipe

• While crust is baking chop rhubarb 
• Toss the rhubarb with sugar and flour until well coated
• Pour rhubarb/sugar mixture into baked crust and bake again according to recipe directions
  • While rhubarb is baking mix up your cream cheese layer by combining cream cheese and sugar until fluffy
• Beat in eggs one at a time
• Add vanilla and combine
• Pour your cream cheese mixture over the baked rhubarb
• The pie plate will be pretty full and there will be extra juices in the pie plate from the baked rhubarb so spread carefully.  Bake according to recipe directions
• While cream cheese layer is baking mix the sour cream, sugar and vanilla together until well blended 
• As soon as the cream cheese layer finishes baking pour the sour cream over the top of the pie leaving a little space around the edges.  Bake again according to recipe directions

• Once the pie is set let it cool then place in fridge for a few hours before serving.  Serve cold and enjoy!

  So Good!
  Yummy!

Enjoy it!
