The easiest rhubarb tart

Another cake with rhubarbs, this time it is a really easy and quick one. It´s more beautiful, if you use the rhubarbs that are red all the way through, the ones that have seen a lot of sun! So probably not the first rhubarbs of the spring.

You need:
500 gr puff pastry
300 gr of curd cheese (or replace it with ricotta)
3 tbls icing sugar
4-8 rhubarbs
4 tbls sugar
a bit of vanilla extract or vanilla seeds

Heat up the oven to 200 degrees C. If you use thick rhubarbs, peel them, if you have young and thin ones, it is not that important. Cut the rhubarbs to about 5 cm pieces. Bake them in the oven, covered with sugar, for 10 minutes. Remove. Mix together curd cheese (or ricotta), icing sugar and vanilla. Cut the puff pastry to about 7-8 cm wide pieces. Make a shallow cut about 1 cm from each edge. Bake the pastry in the preheated oven until it is possible to remove the upper layers of the middle part of each piece. Now you have something like "little puff pastry bowls". Fill them with curd cheese (or ricotta) mixture and set the rhubarb pieces side by side on it. Bake until the edges are golden brown.
