My favorite Rhubarb recipe so far!!! Yum Yum!!! I took previous writer s advice to add red food coloring to syrup and froze the dough for 20 mins. prior to rolling out to avoid stickiness. I also used my food precessor to finely chop the Rhubarb. Worked great! Caution!!! A bit messy!!! Don t assemble when you have mail on your counter! May use less sugar and add pureed Rhubarb to the syrup next time for extra flavor. But it doesn t need it. Great the way this recipe written. Read More

I must have done something wrong. The dough was so sticky I had to keep throwing flour at it just to roll out. Then I couldn't roll it up once it was full of rhubarb because the rhubarb kept ripping and poking out of the dough. It should be made on wax paper to facilitate rolling up. I finally dumped everything willy nilly in the 13x9 pan and then poured the syrup over and it came out with a nice crust but all gooey and sticky and yucky at the bottom. It looked awful. My husband ate the top baked portion with the rhubarb but even the dogs wouldn't touch the slimey bottom. Read More

This recipe is a family favorite to the syrup we add 2 cups chopped Rhubarb to make a basting syrup. Also we like to add some red food coloring to the syrup. Read More

SO GOOD! One thing we did a little different was to puree some of the rhubarb so that it wasn't all just chopped up rhubarb. We then mixed it together with the chopped rhubarb and strained out some of the juice. It was definitely messy but so delicious and a different way to use up all my rhubarb! Read More

Excellent!! I will cut down on the sugar though because I thought it was a little sweet. May try with granny smith apples cinnamon & brown sugar for another variation. Read More

Very tasty and interesting way to use rhubarb! I chilled the dough in the freezer for 20 mins due to its stickiness. When I rolled it out I did it on floured wax paper. This worked great. The glaze you pour on before baking seems like a ton of liquid but it turned out wonderful! Read More

This recipe mimics my in-laws' cherished family rhubarb rolls recipe and tasted just as good! The only difference I made was I used brown sugar in the filling (instead of white) and I added a bit more cinnamon. Read More
