Yield Serves 6
This dessert is far from the ordinary, but completely worth the effort for the phenomenal flavor. A French-inspired pastry with a mild tart flavor and hint of pungent spice give you a simply unique Western-instilled treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet (9 to 10 oz.) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 12 ounces rhubarb (about 8 thin or 3 thick stalks)

How to Make It

  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.

  2. Trim rhubarb 1 in. shorter than pastry, then split lengthwise into 1/2-in.-wide pieces. Lay pieces parallel across the pastry square, leaving 1/2 in. border of pastry. Sprinkle rhubarb with remaining 2 tablespoon granulated sugar.

  3. Bake galette until edges are golden brown and puffed, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream.
