This is my favorite spring recipe. Made with the rhubarb on our farm that I am the 4th generation of my family to enjoy.
1/2 cup butter
1 and 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup Oatmeal
Mix like pie crust, cutting in the butter. Press lightly into the bottom of an 8"x8" or 9"x9" baking pan, or a springform cheesecake pan, reserving about a cup for topping.
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cups sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Beat on low speed until mixed well and smooth.
Fold in 1 and 1/2 cups sliced rhubarb. Pour into the prepared crust. Sprinkle the remaining crust crumbs evenly over the top.
Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until the top is turning golden brown and the center isn't too jiggly.
