DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  • Using a pastry knife or forks, cut the shortening into the flour mixture, then add the milk and mix well.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon; set aside.
  • Roll the dough out on a lightly floured board to 1/4 inch thick, spread generously with the softened butter, then spread with the chopped rhubarb and sprinkle over the sugar mixture.
  • Roll up the dough like a jellyroll or cinnamon rolls, and cut into 1 1/2 to 2 inch pieces.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the hot water, butter, sugar, flour, and salt, and bring to a boil; let boil for 3 minutes to make a sweet sauce, then remove from heat and set aside.
  • Butter a 9x9-inch pan, then place the dough roll slices in the pan; pour the sauce over and around the slices.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown.
  • Notes: you can substitute diced apples for the rhubarb.
