Ingredients

  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 125g Butter
  • 80g Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1kg Rhubarb (500g cooked rhubarb)
  • Caster Sugar to sweeten

Method

  1. Place the butter and sugar in to a bowl and beat until a smooth consistency.
  2. Crack the egg in to a cup then slowly beat into the butter and sugar. Add in your flour and mix together until a dough forms. Divide the dough into two portions (one slightly larger) and wrap in cling film. Leave dough to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  3. To cook the rhubarb, cut the rhubarb in to evenly sized pieces and place in a large pot on a low heat with 50ml water and caster sugar to sweeten. Sweat the rhubarb down until soft. A table knife should be able to go through the rhubarb mixture without force. Set aside to cool.
  4. Remove your pastry from the fridge and roll out one half (larger portion) to line the bottom and sides of a 10 inch flan or foil dish. Roll out the remaining portion for the pastry top and set aside.
  5. Flour your rolling pin and roll the pastry up with the rolling pin, placing it in your dish so all sides are fully covered.
  6. Once the rhubarb has cooled, drain the excess liquid and spoon the rhubarb into the pastry dish. Again, flour your rolling pin and roll the top pastry over the rhubarb covering the top of the dish.
  7. Pinch the edges of the pastry together and cut steam holes in the middle of the pastry top.
  8. Cook at 170°C for 35 minutes.
  9. Dust the tart with caster sugar for a fabulous finish
