Another rhubarb treat!

(Photo by Taste of Home)
I clipped this recipe years ago -- Rhubarb Almond Pastry -- and had not tried it. It's from a 1993 Country Woman magazine!

We liked these pastry squares a lot. They would be good for breakfast or a coffee break as well as for dessert. I especially liked the way the filling turned out and that it didn't have to be precooked. The tapioca thickened it just right. I ran out of rhubarb so filled in with a chopped apple and a few frozen blueberries.

I do need to note that the recipe you will find on the Taste of Home site has a couple of errors in it. The last ingredient listed for the pastry should be milk, not butter. And the recipe I have calls for 1 Tablespoon baking powder, while the one on the site calls for 4 Tblsp. I can't believe that's correct.

Hope you enjoy this recipe if you try it!


  1. Looks yummy! It's hard to find rhubarb around here in the city. Now and then some shows up at the farmer's market. I love to cook with it. Will have to save the recipe until I find some.

  2. Good morning! How fun to see you here again! Hope you enjoy this recipe if you are able to find some rhubarb. It has a nice old-fashioned comforting flavor.
