Rhubarb Curd

I just finished the last piece of this.  With the solstice and full strawberry moon approaching I felt the need for a little bit of comfort.  I felt the need to travel in my mind to the shores of Brittany. A place where sea salt pervades the air and spices up everything from savory to sweet. 

The salt infused sable (or butter cookie) dough used for this free form pie is the perfect base for the sweet curd and fruit topping.  It's name sounds complicated, but it is not.  Avoiding a trip to the store, I used the rhubarb curd I had just concocted along with the mixed berry preserves in my pantry from last year.  The experience of crunch and cream, followed by an explosion of fruit flavor makes this a perfect way to wind down and enjoy the little things.  Thank you Dorie!

Make shortbread and spread dough in one, 9x13 or two, 9" tart pans. You can freeze the dough for up to 6 months if you only want to make one tart.  Or just make cookies with the extra dough.   Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes or until crust begins to brown. 

Spoon lemon, lime, or rhubarb curd over warm crust. Sprinkle sugar over the bars.  Bake at 350 F for 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serve cool.

I just did a post about rhubarb I've never had it as a curd... sounds great. Mine is also gluten free I used cup 4 cup and it came out great.


Love your take on this galette. Sounds great!

Utterly lovely- just wonderful that you put your own stamp on this. Funny how even gluten free or anything free can still end up comfort food when it is home made. That is the best.Great job ~


Looks good. I'm intrigued by the rhubarb curd. I'll check that out.


Rhubarb. I bet that was good.

The rhubarb curd was sensational. A great combination with the berries.
