  3 1/2 inch round tart pans. Trim edges of dough even with edge of
  pan. Prick bottom with fork.  Bake until crisp and lightly browned,
  about 25 minutes. Let cool.
  
  FOR FILLING:  Combine 1/3 cup water and 1/4 cup sugar in medium
  saucepan 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.
  
  Spoon filling into tart shells.  Melt jelly over very low heat. Spoon
  or brush evenly over filling. Refrigerate tarts until ready to serve.
  Top each with a dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream.
  
  Makes 2 servings.
