  • ½ a 500g block puff pastry

  2. Rub together the remaining flour, sugar, butter and oats to make a rough crumble mixture. Divide the rhubarb between the pastry quarters, leaving a 1cm rim. Sprinkle the oat mixture over, then fold and pinch each corner to keep the filling in. Bake for 20-25 mins, then serve warm.

Easy and delicious. I got 6 good sized portions from 1 pack of pre-rolled puff pastry.

Cheated by using pre-rolled puff pastry and it all worked really well. Very tasty.

Super quick and delicious. I used one stick of rhubarb cut into smaller pieces and reduced the other quantities accordingly to make four tarts with half a sheet of ready rolled puff pastry.

I found this recipe a bit bland and nothing special really. I will stick to my traditional crumble in future.

Lovely and the first taste of rhubarb this season! I loaded the tarts as much as I could and added a sprinkle of ground cinnamon and ground ginger to the streusel topping and served with homemade lavender ice-cream - delish!

I wasn't too sure about these as I had far too much rhubarb to fit on to the pastry square. However, they turned out really well. Served with custard after Sunday dinner. None left!
