Rhubarb Tart with Cheesecake-Filling from {nifty thrifty things}

Rhubarb always reminds me of childhood and warm pudding.

Now that I’m an adult, I cook and bake not nearly often enough with this yummy fruit..
A while back my mom and I finally tackled a rhubarb recipe and made a delicious tart with cream cheesecake filling. Yum..

Unfortunately rhubarb-season has already passed for this year, but maybe you’d like to try this recipe next year when rhubarb is in season again.

    What a lovely tart! I kind of hoarded rhubarb when it was in season and froze them lol. I knew they would be gone so fast and I wanted a supply for the year! I wonder if I could use frozen rhubarb here? We’ll find out :)

    This is such a pretty, festive looking dessert! I love the tart flavor of rhubarb when combined with sweet strawberries, so I can imagine how delicious this must be with the addition of the cheesecake! I can’t wait to try this recipe very soon!
