    Rhubarb Cheesecake Dessert
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup cold butter or margarine
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts and vanilla extract. Press into a greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes. Cool slightly. Meanwhile, prepare filling.

    Filling
    16 ounces cream cheese, softened
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    3 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; mix well. Pour over the crust. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until center is set and edges are light brown. Cool.

    Topping
    3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb,
    thawed and drained
    1 cup granulated sugar (optional)
    1/4 cup water
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3 to 4 drops red food coloring (optional)

    In a saucepan, combine rhubarb, sugar, water, cornstarch and cinnamon; bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Stir in food coloring if desired. Remove from the heat; cool. Pour over filling. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

    Yields 12 to 15 servings.
