I found this in a country cooking cookbook. It is not overly sweet which is why I enjoy it.

I had some frozen rhubarb in the freezer and these sounded so good I had to make some. They are absolutely delicious and we all enjoyed them, believe it or not 4 of us ate them all in one day! These would be good with other fruit too. I will be trying strawberries next!
