Ingredients:

 

6 sticks of rhubarb, washed and cut into 3cm pieces

1 tsp ground cinnamon

3 tbsp plain flour, plus extra for dusting

5 tbsp soft brown sugar

250g block puff pastry, thawed

3 tbsp unsalted butter

50g / 2 oz rolled oats

 

 

 

AND THIS IS WHAT YOU DO....

 

  1. Pre heat the oven to 200C/Fan 180C/ Gas 6
     

  2. Wash the rhubarb, pat dry and toss this in a bowl with the cinnamon, 1 tbsp flour and 2 tbsp sugar.
     

  3. Line a baking sheet with a piece of baking parchment.
     

  4. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface measuring 20 x 30 cm, cut into quarters and place on the baking sheet.
     

  5. Rub together the remaining flour, sugar, butter and oats to make a rough crumble mixture.   
     

  6. Divide the rhubarb among the pastry quarters leaving  1 cm rim.   Fold and pinch each corner to keep the filling in and then sprinkle over the oat mixture.
