1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 tablespoons flour
12 ounces rhubarb (about 8 thin or 3 thick stalks)


1. Preheat oven to 425° with a rack set on lowest level. Unfold pastry onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, the brown sugar, cardamom, and flour. Evenly sprinkle sugar mixture over pastry.
