 1 sheet (9 to 10 oz.) frozen puff pastry, thawed
 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
 2 tablespoons flour

Trim rhubarb 1 in. shorter than pastry, then split lengthwise into 1/2-in.-wide pieces. Lay pieces parallel across the pastry square, leaving 1/2 in. border of pastry. Sprinkle rhubarb with remaining 2 tablespoon granulated sugar.

Step 3

Bake galette until edges are golden brown and puffed, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream.
