I am thrilled to report that fresh rhubarb has arrived. That means fruit pie season has officially begun!

To mark the occasion, I wanted to make a fancy rhubarb pie with a show-offy crust. I found started poking around on Martha Stewart's website for some inspiration and found this  instead —  an easy and delicious-sounding recipe for adorable mini tarts made with frozen puff pastry. Martha used strawberries along with the rhubarb, but I left those out since it was the tart and tangy experience I wanted. I also added a honey drizzle at the end because I have a maniacal sweet tooth. If you don’t, feel free to skip that part.

These are so quick and easy I made them after cleaning up dinner last night. The recipe is also a great one for kids to help with. My 4-year-old, Sadie, helped combine the rhubarb mixture and pinch the pastry around the filling. An older kid could easily handle the prep entirely on his or her own, with rhubarb-slicing supervision, of course.

When shopping, look for rhubarb that's nice and bright, with firm, crisp stalks and no blemishes. if the leaves are still attached, make sure they look perky and fresh. 

Make these for a special weeknight dessert. After all, spring produce is something to celebrate!
