Recipe type: Baked Goods
Cuisine: British
Serves: 4
  • 7 ounces frozen puff pastry, defrosted, chilled
  • 6 sticks rhubarb, fresh, cleaned
  • 5 1/2 ounces unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 1/2 ounces granulated sugar
  • grated zest of lemon
  • 2 vanilla bean pods, each split and cut in 4 pieces
  • 7 ounces Mascarpone
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and get out 4 heatproof blini pans. Roll the puff pastry to about 1⁄8-inch thick and cut into 4 disks with a diameter slightly larger than the pans. Prick each disk and leave to chill in the fridge.
  2. Choose the thicker pieces of rhubarb and cut to fit the 4 pans perfectly in 2 layers. Cover the base of each pan with the butter and then sprinkle over the sugar, orange zest, and a piece of vanilla pod, and then add the rhubarb pieces.
  3. Cook the rhubarb on a very high heat on the stovetop for about 10 minutes to reach a good, bitter caramelization.
  4. Check by carefully lifting up the rhubarb with a palette knife, but do not be tempted to stir the rhubarb.
  5. Cover each pan carefully with a disk of puff pastry, allowing the pastry to tuck just inside the pans. Place the pans on a baking sheet and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the puff pastry is perfectly cooked and the tartes have a good caramelization. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes.
  6. Carefully invert each pan onto a plate, letting the tarte drop gently down. Serve immediately, each topped with a scoop of mascarpone cheese and a remaining piece of vanilla pod, to decorate.
