Rhubarb Galettes …………………

Season’s first Rhubarb

Just enough to make two small galettes. 
I gave one to our favourite neighbour and Moe and I shared the other one.    
It was our lunch.  
And to be even more decadent I drizzled each slice with a little sour cream that had been sweetened with brown sugar.
The tang of the sour cream pairs beautifully with the rhubarb.
The filling was the same as my favourite Rhubarb Pie.  
The pastry I used this time is one that handles very well and is made with a little oatmeal and maple syrup.

  1. I need to get on the rhubarb train soon. I remember growing up as a kid and pulling the stalks from the garden, a quick rinse and we would dip them in a bowl of sugar and munch on them that way.

  2. Your photography is awesome as well as the food I am sure – of course a sample would be nice!!!
