  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the rhubarb with 1/2 cup of sugar and the flour. Pour into the pie shell. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove, and allow to cool. Lower the temperature of the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sugar until smooth. Stir in the eggs one at a time until each is blended. Pour this mixture over the rhubarb in the crust.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set. Remove from the oven, and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and vanilla. Spread over the top of the pie while it is hot. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled before serving.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I submitted this recipe. Please do not let the pie cool after cooking the rhubarb for 15 minutes. Add the cream cheese filling to hot rhubarb mixture and return to the reduced temperature oven ...

I made this one and the "rhubarb cheesecake" on this site with a shortbread crust, and the other was MUCH better. Be sure to add some chopped pecans or walnuts when making the crust.

I never thought of using rhubarb this way, but it came out fabulous!!!

I thought this was very unusual tasting. I don't like rhubarb, but I liked this. Much better the longer it was refrigerated. I'm not 100% crazy about the sour cream topping, but still thoroughl...

What an unexpected surprise! Just one hint: cover outside edges of pie crust with foil before baking to prevent darkened / burst crust. This was very, very good. I followed the directions exa...
