With the topping and pie waiting in the fridge, dessert is ready at a moment's notice. We used Dad's Original Oatmeal cookies for the crust; other brands may require slightly more butter to moisten the crumbs.

  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup crushed oatmeal cookie
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
Filling:
  • 1 1/2 pkg (8 oz/250 g each) cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
Sauce:
  • 4 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Method

In bowl, stir cookies with butter; press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool.

Filling: Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar until fluffy; beat in sour cream, egg, egg yolk and orange rind. Spread in pie shell.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until shine disappears and edge is set but centre still jiggles slightly, about 30 minutes. Let cool on rack. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours.

Sauce: In saucepan, stir rhubarb with sugar over medium heat until boiling and sugar melts, about 3 minutes. Whisk cornstarch with orange juice; whisk into rhubarb mixture and boil until thickened and opaque, about 1 minute. Let cool. Serve with cheesecake. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate pie and topping separately for up to 24 hours.)
