- 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk the first six ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add rhubarb; toss to coat.

Reviews for Rhubarb Scones
"These are awesome, and the perfect size -- not too big. The cardamom and rhubarb play so well together. Was worried I wouldn't be able to find whole wheat pastry flour, but there it was in the baking aisle. It even comes in small bags, so you don't have to buy a ton for one recipe. Next time, I'm increasing the rhubarb to two cups, but will probably add a little more sugar, too."
"Nice and tender with a slight cardamom flavor. I took these to a church potluck and people were tricked into eating and enjoying them thinking they contained strawberries! They were surprised to learn the truth! This was a good way to use up my extra rhubarb. Actually I increased the amount of rhubarb and it was still good."
"Great recipe! Love the tart little bites of rhubarb."
"This recipe is a keeper, thank you for sharing. :)"
