Makeover Rhubarb Shortcake Dessert Recipe

Publisher Photo
Carol Gallagher, a missionary in Paupa, New Guinea asked our Test Kitchen to lighten up this favorite. Cream was replaced with 2% milk, orange marmalade was substituted for three of the original’s egg yolks, and the sugar was reduced. The resulting makeover recipe has half the total fat and 60% less saturated fat.--Taste of Home's Test Kitchen

  2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and orange marmalade until blended; add the sugar, flour and salt. Stir in the rhubarb, milk and orange peel; pour over crust. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Land O' Lakes light stick butter. If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
