Savoring Summertime with Raparperipiirakka

It brings a smile to my lips to think of the sweet things of summer. 

Here's How to Make a Rhubarb Treat With Your Favorite Toddler:

 these stalks clearly pass the taste test 
 measure the dry ingredients

 add sour cream
 and melted butter

spread the blob onto a pan lined with parchment paper 

 cut rhubarb stalks

 and place them in the pan

this is the best part!
then bake

and be so glad you did!

    RAPARPERIPIIRAKKA (Finnish Rhubarb Pie)

 3 stalks rhubarb, washed and peeled
1and 2/3 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2/3 C sugar
1and 1/3 C sour cream
1/3 C butter or margarine, melted

Mix dry ingredients first, then add wet ingredients.
Mix quickly with a wooden spoon. (It's ok to have a few lumps)
Spread onto an oven pan or cookie sheet with edges, lined with parchment paper.
Cut rhubarb into 1/2 inch pieces and place on batter.
Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at 400 F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
(Note: ovens vary, so check periodically)
