Put the flour in a bowl and rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Stir in 25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp of the sugar.
Mix with the egg yolk and enough water to form a firm dough.
Knead gently on a lightly floured surface and roll out to a 46 X 33 cm/18 X 13 in rectangle.

Place a rhubarb stick on top of each.
Fold the pastry over and press the edges well together to seal.
Knock up with the back of a knife and transfer to a lightly greased baking (cookie) sheet.
Brush with the lightly beaten egg white, then sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown and the rhubarb is tender.
Leave to cool, then cut each stick into three pieces.
