Rhubarb crumble tartlets

Sharing is caring, you say? Well, I must have 0 caring then, because I made these tartlets over the weekend and didn’t share any of them. These sweet, rich and indulgent beauties turned me into a very selfish (but happy) person who ate dessert for breakfast for 4 days. If you look at the pictures you will only see 5 tarts even though the recipe makes 6. That’s right, I couldn’t even wait long enough to take pictures… No regrets though.

However, I’m back to my normal self now and I think I am ready to share this recipe.

This was the first time I used and, in fact, tried muscovado sugar. I’m so glad BakingMad.com package I received last week included Billington’s light muscovado sugar. It gave these tarts such a rich flavour and irresistible smell.

Just top them with a scoop of vanilla and you’ve got yourself an ultimate “Treat yo self” moment. Obviously, they are great for sharing too, if you are not as selfish as I am πŸ™‚

Enjoy!
