Melody Wren of The Cook’s Kitchen featured this recipe in an informational post on rhubarb, including how to store and prepare it. “Impressive for guests, and easier than pie – these turnovers are best served fresh the day you make them.” Puff pastry is available in the freezer section of the grocery store; there are several dairy-free brands available these days.
