From the Kitchen Of Kathy Absher

Ingredients:
CRUST:
1 cup flour
¼ cup sugar
½ cup butter (cold, cut into small cubes)
½ cup chopped pecans (optional)
RHUBARB LAYER:
3 cups chopped Knutson’s rhubarb
½ cup sugar
1 T. flour

2 – 8 oz packages of cream cheese (room temperature)
½ cup sugar
2 – eggs (room temperature)
TOPPING:
1 cup sour cream
2 T. sugar
1 t. vanilla

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9" springform pan. In small bowl cut butter into the rest of crust ingredients (adding pecans after butter is incorporated into flour and sugar). Lightly press into pan. Mix all of Rhubarb Layer ingredients. Spread on top of crust. Place another pan underneath (to catch leakage from pan) and bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare filling. Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Do not over beat (this can cause cracking in your cheesecake). Remove crust and rhubarb from oven and decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees. Pour filling over rhubarb and bake an additional 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Pour Topping over the cheesecake, carefully spreading to edges and bake for 5 minutes more. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Once completely cooled, cover and place in frig. For at least 8 hours. This is best if made the day before. Run a sharp knife around edge of cheesecake to loosen sides. Remove rim of springform pan. Serve and enjoy!
