Well... the sun sure has been good for the rhubarb!

. .. . .. .. . .... . . .. . . . . .. . . . . . .. . .. ..

I really am not sure that this is the correct title leadway into a post that is to include two *new-for-me*, delicious rhubarb recipes, but everytime I see or think rhubarb I recall this hilarious attempt, by my dear friend Amiee, in effort to change the subject of any given topic - should the conversation go awry. 

It was her way - and it usually worked.

I do want to stay on track here, though and share these new recipes with you, today.  The first is...

~ Rhubarb Cream Delight Dessert ~

1 cup flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter

Rhubarb Layer:
3 cups fresh rhubarb, cut in 1/2" pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. flour

Cream Layer:
12 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs

8 oz. dairy sour cream
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

For crust, mix flour sugar and butter; pat into 10" pie plate.  Set aside.  For rhubarb layer, combine rhubarb, sugar, and flour; toss lightly and pour into crust.  Bake at 375* for about 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, prepare cream layer by beating together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy.  Beat in eggs one at a time, then pour over hot rhubarb layer.  Bake at 350* for about 30 minutes or until almost set.  Combine topping ingredients; spread over hot layers.  Chill.
Yield: 12-16 servings.

** Delicious combination of cheesecake and tart rhubarb.  If you're fond of both of these, it's a wonderful, wonderful dessert.
The second recipe is these here muffins.

I found this recipe looking for something - coffee cake like or quick bread... and I'm so glad I found this recipe. It's easy, fast and delicious.

~ Rhubarb Muffins~

2 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
2/3 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups diced fresh rhubarb

1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 tsp. cinnamon

Combine all dry ingredients and mix.  Add all the rest.  Put topping on.  Bake at 375* for 16-18 minutes.
Yield: 2 dozen muffins.

** They're easy to freeze.  Hope you enjoy!
