First things first, let’s tackle the pastry dough. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Take the cold, cubed butter and work it into the flour until it forms a crumbly mixture. Now, beat an egg and add it to the bowl along with a splash of vanilla extract. Mix everything until you have a smooth dough. Shape it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and let it chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.


While the dough rests, it’s time to prepare the rhubarb. Give those stalks a good wash and trim off the ends. Slice them thinly and evenly, setting them aside for later.


Once the dough has chilled, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it’s large enough to fit your tart pan. Carefully transfer the dough to the pan and press it gently against the bottom and sides. Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges.


Now, let’s arrange those beautiful rhubarb slices! Take your time and create a visually pleasing pattern by overlapping the slices on top of the pastry. Sprinkle some sugar over the rhubarb to enhance its natural sweetness.


Into the oven it goes! Bake the tart for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until the crust turns a golden brown and the rhubarb softens. Keep an eye on it to ensure it doesn’t overcook.


Once your French Rhubarb Tart emerges from the oven, allow it to cool for a few minutes. You can enjoy it warm or wait until it cools completely—the choice is yours!


Serve generous slices of this heavenly tart on dessert plates. For an extra touch of indulgence, add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. The combination of the tangy rhubarb and the buttery, flaky crust is sheer perfection!


Prepare to wow your friends and family with this marvelous French Rhubarb Tart. They won’t be able to resist its allure. Get ready for a sensational dessert experience!
