Fresh picked - delicious!

Using frozen puff pastry makes this a very simple dessert. Of course, if you want to make it a complicated dessert, by all means, make the puff pastry yourself.

1 1/2 cups finely sliced rhubarb

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2. In a small saucepan put rhubarb, 1 tablespoon of sugar,  1 teaspoon of ground ginger and 2 tablespoons of water.  Simmer for 10 minutes until rhubarb is tender.  Add vanilla.

3. Spoon rhubarb mixture over pastry squares; sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon of  sugar and bake for an additional 5 minutes until golden.

4. Serve with creme fraiche or whipped cream.
