Making a classic Rhubarb Strawberry Cheesecake is one of the best ways to usher in summer. It’s also a fantastic midwestern dessert that most folks don’t want to share… we like to keep these gems to ourselves! 😉
In a medium saucepan, combine rhubarb, 1/3 cup sugar, and orange juice. Bring just to boiling; reduce heat. Cook, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until rhubarb is tender, stirring occasionally; set aside to cool.
In a heavy small saucepan, melt white chocolate over very low heat, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.
In a very large bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium-high speed until well blended. (about five minutes)
