I'm a homemaker—with two children, 4 and 1—who likes to try new recipes. When I served these at a recent family gathering, I got lots of compliments!

Ingredients

  • SAUCE:
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Red food coloring, optional
  • DOUGH:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • FILLING:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

Directions

In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Stir in water; add butter. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and, if desired, enough food coloring to tint sauce a deep pink; set aside.

Gather dough into a ball and roll out on a floured surface into a 12-in. x 9-in. x rectangle. Spread with softened butter; arrange rhubarb on top.
Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over rhubarb. Roll up from the long side and place on a cutting board, seam side down. Cut roll into 12 slices.

"This recipe is very easy and a perfect way to use rhubarb. I used frozen chopped rhubarb, the down side was it was it was too wet. If you use frozen rhubarb I would recommend to really allow for the water to be removed from the frozen rhubarb maybe even place the thawed rhubarb in a dry cloth to remove some of the excess water before placing it in the recipe. One small change, I also used half whole wheat pastry flour which turned out nice. I also only cut my dough into 8 slices."

"I would suggest cutting into 6 pieces and put in an 8x8 pan. It is really hard to cut the roll with the chopped rhubarb inside into 1 inch slices. I reduced the amount of sugar and water in the sauce and added some rhubarb syrup instead to increase the rhubarb taste."

"We absolutely love this recipe. I have been making it every year since it first appeared in Taste of Home back in 1993. I cut the recipe out and used it every time but it's getting tattered so now I'm printing off a new copy. My entire family loves this dessert."
