Let cool.

over low heat. Add rhubarb, cover and bring to simmer, stirring gently
once or twice. Cook just until rhubarb is tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Drain, reserving liquid. Taste and adjust sweetness of the rhubarb, adding
more sugar if desired. Return liquid ro pan.

Mix 2 tablespoons water with arrowroot. Blend into rhubarb cooking liquid.
Place over low heat and stir gently until thickened and clear, about 5
minutes. Add rhubarb. Let cool.

brush evenly over filling. Refrigerate tarts until ready to serve. Top each
