    What 1 Other has said

    • This cheesecake is truly superb. Easy to make if you follow the instructions. I was worried about the rhubarb not softening or giving out too much liquid but neither happened. I was unsure about putting sour cream on the hot cheesecake but it made a great look to the top. I wasn't sure whether should be served warm but best chilled where it sets perfectly to remove from the baking tin. The biscuit base is gorgeous. Enjoy!
